Summary Description of a Listed Buildings

Name of Property
Cross in the Churchyard of the Holy Cross
About 10m south of the Church of the Holy Cross
Religious, Ritual and Funerary
This cross is largely undatable. Most churchyard crosses are C15 but a C11 date has been suggested for this one. It is of unusual form, but it may of course have been re-erected in the C15 anyway.
The cross lacks its steps, if it ever had them. The socket stone is half buried in the ground and bears a monolithic shaft of rectangular cross section with an integral head of simple form, carved from local conglomerate.
Reason for designation
Included for special interest as a medieval churchyard cross which, unusually, is still complete.
The cross is a Scheduled Ancient Monument, MM104(MON).
