The remains of the cross. There is only a ruined shaft upon a pile of rocks.


These sorry remains of a cross are in a private field. As a matter of fact, only a part of the shaft is still visible among a pile of rocks. You have to drive through the small village of Lorum and turn right after the church. Take the road until you reach a farm. Ask the farmer the permission to walk to the cross. It takes a 160 metre walk in the mud and the manure to reach the remains.
The cross is 10 metres behind the cattle gate. It stands upon a pile of rocks that is 70 centimetres tall and 150 centimetres wide.
The remaining shaft is 57 centimetres tall, 30 centimetres wide and 10 centimetres thick.
