MONUMENT NO. 1258741

DESCRIPTION + /

A medieval standing cross base in the churchyard of St Mary's Church. The cross base, which is Listed Grade II, stands 8 metres north west of the north west corner of the tower adjacent to the west wall of the nave. The base is constructed of fine gritstone, is octagonal and forms two steps up to the base block which is also octagonal. The socket has been reused as a setting for a later sundial shaft, possibly 18th century, of a different gritstone. This is square at the base, rising by shallow-cut shoulders to become octagonal, and stands 0.85 metres high with a small drip moulding at the top. The dial and gnomon are missing. Scheduled.
