|Discovery:||first mentioned, 1600 Camden, W.|
|History:||Okasha/1993, 213: `The stone has always stood in the same field as it stands today. It was recorded there three times in the early seventeenth century'.|
|Geology:||Macalister/1949, 184: `granite'.|
|Dimensions:||1.4 x 0.85 x 0.54 (Okasha/1993)|
Okasha/1993, 213: `The stone now stands, alongside a carved, uninscribed stone, in a grass enclosure in a field; this field is on the left-hand side of the unclassified road from St Cleer to Redgate, about 1.5 km. from St Cleer'.
|Form:||Cramp shaft A|
Okasha/1993, 215: `The stone appears to have formed the lower part of a carved cross-shaft but is now incomplete...It has no base; Langdon in fact described it as a `cross-base'...Lysons and Lysons recorded the height as six feet (c. 180) which suggests that 40 cm. of the shaft are now beneath the ground'.
|Condition:||frgmntry , poor|
Okasha/1993, 215: `incomplete'.
|Decorations:||beading; geometric ribbon interlace|
Langdon/1896, 377--378: `It is panelled on all four sides, and has a wide flat bead on the angles. The front, which faces east, is inscribed, and the other three sides are ornamented with bold and deeply cut plaitwork, or knots, as follows:
Front. -- An inscription in Saxon minuscules...
Left side. -- A four cord plait.
Back. -- This originally had four knots in the panel, each consisting of two oval rings placed crosswise and interlaced; but only the two lower ones are now perfect.
Right side. -- A six-cord plait; or the pattern may be intended for two oval rings placed crosswise, combined with one of a lozenge shape'.
Macalister/1949, 184: `The other [uninscribed] faces have simple interlacing patterns: the carving throughout is bold and ornamental in style'.
