The shaft of the Cross, on a square base of 5 steps with coved treads, stands in a pavilion of red sandstone with square corner pillars which have rudely moulded bases and bell capitals carrying a stone roof with a pedimented gable to each face, and ball finials. The ridge-crossing carries a tapered extension to the shaft of the cross (probably C17) on which is a stone ball and an ornate weathervane. On the east, south and west gables are bronze sundials of 1897 inscribed We are a Shadow; Save Time; Think of the Last.
