Notes: This stone was found a great many years ago built into a stone dyke, and having served for long after as a cover on a well is now built into an outside wall at the farm. Due to water pouring over the cross in its present position, it is clear that the sculpture will soon become unrecognisable. The cross is incised, about 1 foot 5 inches in length with arms some 6 inches long which end in round discs.
