Preserved in Falkirk parish church (NS 8873 8001) is a carved sandstone crosshead, affixed to a modern base which is inscribed, "This crosshead probably once formed part of a sanctuary or boundary cross erected about 1200 AD. It was found in the vicinity of this church." The cross has expanding arms and both faces are carved with a conventional design. It measures 1'2" x 10" x 5", but its lower part has broken off. It was perhaps more probably a headstone.
