The cross with its half head.


When we first came here it was on May 8th 1997, but the gate to the church was closed.
The cross is in the south-southwest sector of the churchyard. It stands on a base that is 1.25 metres high, 1.10 metres wide and 1.18 metres deep.
The cross misses the upper part of the head, only two arms and half of the ring remain. Its measures are 3.27 metres of height and 93 centimetres at the arms, the shaft measures 54 centimetres in width and 30 centimetres in depth.
It faces southeast (120°).
Due to the fact that the cross has no decorations it's hard to date the cross, some sources speculate that the head was not original with the cross.
