A medieval standing cross comprising of a chamfered plinth surmounted by a two-stepped base and a socket stone; the shaft and head are missing. The socket stone is square at the base, chamfered above broach stops, and rises to an octagonal section. The tenon of the cross-shaft still lodges in a square mortice at the centre of the socket stone. There is a mid-twentieth-century plaque at the side of the base, but the inscription is no longer clearly legible.
