More information : At SS 67454494 is a medieval cross base, possibly of a
former churchyard cross, set into the SW buttress of the tower
as part of the fabric. It is of red sandstone 0.8m square and
0.4m deep with two ornamented sides exposed (1).

At SS 67458 44947. A block of curved sandstone built into the south-west tower of St Patrick's Church. It measures 0.46m by 0.48m and is 0.64m high. Two of the visible faces have decoration on them. That facing north-west has a cross-saltire and that facing south-east has a quatrefoil, s described in SMR report no: SS 64 SE 12.3. The decoration is very well preserved, suggesting that it has been concealed; traces of ? plaster or render are visible in places on the decorated surface of the stone. No other similar fragments are visible on the building; and it is by no means certain that it is part of a cross base. (2-3)
