A slender, free-standing stone, square or roughly rectangular in section, usually over 1m high, on the surface of which a cross has been inscribed or carved in relief. Found in ecclesiastical contexts or associated with holy wells. In this case the cross-inscribed pillar has been moved from its original location. These date to the early medieval period (c. 5th-12th centuries AD).
