NJ81NE 8.03 8752 1541

Four stone crosses of different (unusual) forms have been discovered at various times during grave-digging in the churchyard. They lay 'for a considerable time' with the sculpture stone (NJ81NE 8.01) in the E gable, but have now been set into the walls.

('Dyce no. 1'). This mutilated stone measures 1'3" (380mm) in height, 10" (254mm) in breadth and 4" (102mm) in thickness, and bears a now-incomplete cross rudely formed of two incised lines which intersect at the centre. This intersection is enclosed by an incised square of side 5" (127mm) with sides drawn parallel to the lines that form the cross. A circular hollow of diameter 1" (25mm) and not unlike a shallow cupmark is set into the centre of each of the four small squares thus formed.

J Ritchie 1911
