Currently located against the inner face of the W gable of the church, this tapered slab measures 0.93m in length by up to 0.43m in breadth and 0.1m in thickness.

The cross measures 0.66m in height by 0.41m in breadth and has expanded terminals, rounded armpits and is open at the foot, suggesting that it was designed to stand upright.
