(SX 512699) A slightly tapering, headless, octagonal, shaft which is possibly, but not certainly, that of a cross, stands in a yard at the end of a short lane which branches off on the left-hand side of the road from Horrabridge station to the village, immediately south of the ancient bridge over the River Walkham.

Identification as cross shaft uncertain. Considered under the Monument Protection Programme, but not recommended for scheduling.
