An Early Christian cross, some 2m high, cut into the rock face. The upper part of the cross has weathered off, but the remainder is in good condition. Locally the cross is thought to be recent, because it is not widely known. It is a simple incised cross, with hollows at the intersections of the arms and a nimbus connecting the arms.
