Description
Celtic Cross on a base and steps in small garden area in the square in the centre of the village. Two metal (steel?) plaques are bolted into recesses on two sides of the plinth- WW1 on the 6 o'clock face, WW2 on the 3 o'clock face. These plaques look fairly modern- it is conjectured that they replace names cut into the stonework, which had become weathered.
