The cross can be found in the graveyard to the right of the church entrance.

I am far from being an expert on prehistoric rock art but I have to say that the cup marks on this stone are far from convincing. Perhaps they are just very worn – a bit like the cross!

Still, the graveyard is worth checking out. The path leading through the graveyard is made up of old headstones! Most seem to be from the 1700s – never seen a path like that before!

The church was all locked up so I wasn't able to have a look inside.
