The slender cross pillar with Downpatrick Head in the background.


This cross pillar is actually a slender standing stone on which west side two crosses have been carved.
The first cross is thin in size, measuring 65 centimetres in height and only 20 in width. The other cross is inscribed into a circle and has a size of 25 centimetres each side.
The slender standing stone has an amazing height of 5.30 metres, but it's only 43 centimetres wide and 25 centimetres thick. It leans to the east at an angle of 10° and I think that someday it could tip over and break in many pieces.
It's so tall and slender that I took it for a telephone pole when we drove by it.
