MONUMENT NO. 69408

DESCRIPTION + /

The remains of a standing cross immediately to the south of the south porch of St Mary's Church, Bruera. The base and part of the shaft survive and have been converted into a sundial. The base is a single block of buff sandstone, square with a slightly chamfered top edge. The socket is smaller than the shaft fragment, providing a mortice and tenon connection. The shaft is also of buff sandstone, squared, tapering slightly and rising from a roll moulding at the base. This is surmounted by a square capstone of a different type of sandstone with a slight chamfer on the edges on the underside. On the west side the cap is inscibed TM JH CW and dated 1736. The shaft is inscribed WP HN CHURCHWARDENS 1693 on its west and north faces. Scheduled.
