Richards, A. F., 2016, Comment regarding the listed status of the cross in the churchyard (Personal Comment). SDV163297.

This record appears to have been muddled with the cross at the eastern end of the village; near the Vicarage and the list description had been added to this record. Checked and removed from this record as this cross does not ever appear to have been listed.
