OS 6" map (1968)

This square-dressed socket-stone of grey whin is 29" square and 16" above ground, the socket is 14 1/2" x 21 1/2" x 9 1/2" deep. Round the edge of the stone is a 4" splay. The edge round the socket has been chipped and rounded and a shallow channel formed at one corner, so that it may have been used as a trough. The cross formerly stood by the roadside, but the socket stone has been moved into its present position in the adjoining field, while the shaft was taken to Cathlaw House for building purposes (Name Book 1856).
