The cross pillar and base is hidden in the vegetation, next to the gate post.


Well hidden into the vegetation, near a gate next to a junction is a cross pillar.
It has a square section and tapers to the top, where a square socket is. This might indicate that in the past this was the base for a cross.

It seemed to me that a faint incision of a Latin cross is on the the west-northwest (290°) face of the pillar.
The pillar is 1.08 metres tall, it's 42 centimetres wide and 31 centimetres thich at the base. The socket on the top is square, and it measures 11 centimetres on each side.
