The cross and the slab on the low mound seen from the southeast.


This place is visible in a field. We looked for a passage into the hedge and we found it. There's a cattle gate and from here we walked for 60 metres southwest until we reached a low mound 10 metres high. On this mound there's a group of trees and under them there is a cross and a small slab with the bas-relief of the crucifixion.
The plain cross is 1.90 metres tall, 35 centimetres wide and 30 centimetres thick. The arms of the head are 85 centimetres wide. It stands on a square base of 55 centimetres on each side and 40 centimetres tall. There's a simple and faint decoration on its east face.
The small slab is 1.70 metres north of the cross and stands on a small stone base. It's 70 centimetres tall and 30 centimetres wide. On its east face there's a wonderful crucifixion and in my opinion it's at least 1,000 years old.
