Churchyard crosses mostly date from the medieval period and acted as a site for preaching, especially for the itinerant orders, a focus of liturgical processions and to sanctify the churchyard for burial before the development of individual Graveyard monuments after the Reformation. Top of shaft has been remodelled, creating a knob finial possibly from the base of a earlier crucifix.

Listed as a medieval churchyard cross which is mostly intact and for group value with the church of St David and Cliff Cottage.
