The fragment from the side (NW).

by Rita Wood.

This piece is on the N side of the tower, within the complex courses of the late medieval plinth, by the NW buttress. It is just the head of an incised 'bracelet-headed' cross. This style was current in perhaps late 12th century or early 13th century.

Higher up the same wall are the foot ends (steps and shaft) of further crosses. These more likely to be 13th century (Kirk, 1960, 16-17 citing an earlier description of the reuse of such slabs).
