The southwest face of the cross pillar with the bas-relief carved cross.


It's not easy to find this cross pillar because it isn't visible from the road. We asked a farmer in the area and he directed us properly.
From the gate we walked for 50 metres north up the low but steep hill to a concrete enclosure completely overgrown with nettles.
The pillar is 2.57 centimetres tall, 50 centimetres wide and 35 centimetres thick and leans by 20° to south.
The side that faces to 210° has a cross in relief which measures 100 x 36 centimetres. On the opposite side there's a carved cross whose measures are 50 x 35 centimetres.
