Maughold Cross Slab

Period: Medieval

NGR Easting: 249290

NGR Northing: 491675

Description: This stone was found in the churchyard, about 20m south of the west end of the church.

It is a fine wheel-headed slab, one face of which shows an equal-limbed ‘cross pattée’ set in a broad ring, bordered by a double bead. The ring is supported on a very short, broad shaft, below which the stone extends to form a mortice intended to fit into a socket stone. The other face has only the outline of the ring and shaft.
