The tall West Cross is at the very end of a field.


This high cross is located about 170 metres to the west-southwest (240°) of the church, in an open field.
On the east-southeast (110°) side of the head a crucifixion has been carved. The figure of Christ wears a long robe with a sack hanging from his neck. Intertwined motifs fill the spaces on the wheel of the head.
It has been suggested that the traces of a gabled structurs low down on the shaft are of a long gone tomb or shrine at the foot of the cross.
