Stone cross standing in the garden of a cottage at the roadside where the Bittaford - Cheston road meets a lane south to the Exeter-Plymouth road (Blacksmith's Lane).
Type A. A massive monolithic stone; the shaft of oval section and slightly inset where it meets the arms. A cross has been incised between the arms on the side facing the road. Very wide at base and tapering upwards. Below the arms it narrows and then becomes rectangular in section; the arms are short and straight but their ends slope inwards. Set up on a modern rectangular socket-stone.

Moved to here in 1959/1960 from the lawn at Wrangaton House (SX67685783). It had been removed to Wrangaton House from a field near Hookmoor Cross where it had served as a gatepost (masson phillips, tda 69). However, may have originally stood at the road junction outside the garden where it now stands.
