Activities

Field Visit (23 March 2017)

Currently located against the inner face of the W gable of the church, this tapered slab measures 0.93m in length by up to 0.43m in breadth and 0.1m in thickness. It bears an Early Medieval outline cross carved in relief and set out to follow the curved profile of the slab. The cross measures 0.66m in height by 0.41m in breadth and has expanded terminals, rounded armpits and is open at the foot, suggesting that it was designed to stand upright.

Visited by HES Survey and Recording (ATW, GG) 23 March 2017.
