Middle Farm Cross Slab

Period: Early Medieval

NGR Easting: 235770

NGR Northing: 474560

Description: This broken slab was found on Middle Farm and the farmer set it up in a field (PRN 0706) south of the farmstead, though apparently there is no surviving tradition of a burial ground at this location. It was moved to the church c.1918.

The heavily weathered slab bears a simple carved cross. Above and below the slab has been cut away to create the illusion of a roughly circular ring around the cross. The spaces between the limbs, and the terminals of the upper and lower arms, contain small cup-shaped hollows.
