MONUMENT NO. 1259578

DESCRIPTION + /

The base and part of the shaft of a medieval standing cross in the churchyard of St Mary's Church. The cross is probably in its original location, 10 metres south of the south wall of the nave. The base is sqaure, cut from a massive piece of gritstone, and formed into two steps. The shaft is almost square, rising to octagonal at a point 0.1 metre from the cross base. The transition is effected by four simple darts cut across the corners. The shaft is incomplete, measuring 1.32 metres high, cut level at the top to accommodate a sundial which has since lost its gnomon. The shaft is made from a different, better quality stone, from the base. This suggests that the base may have been made at an earlier date. Scheduled.
