|Description ||St Andrew's Church - 9th Century Cross Fragment.|
This is the smaller fragment, which is believed to date from the 9th century, was found in 1900 close to the Church and deep in clay. It is considerably damaged but some detail of the carving is still quite sharp. The least damaged face of the shaft, where the top has been broken off, shows two pairs of human feet. Beneath is a lion-like winged creature, with a large face and sorrowful eyes, with the head and part of the body of a serpent.
