The half interred cross in the churchyard. The red and yellow stick is 1 metre long, for scale.


Next to the St. John's church in Nurney there are two rude crosses.
The first is visible in the churchyard, 4 metres south of the church. It looks like it's half interred and only the head pops up from the ground. It measures 85 centimetres in height and about 90 centimetres in width.
The second cross is more beautiful, but it's beyond the wall that marks the border between the churchyard and a pasture where some calves were grazing. We didn't get over the wall. I took the coordinates at this wall, as close as possible to the second cross.
