Putley churchyard cross, Putley - Herefordshire, County of (UA)

Heavily weathered medieval figurative cross-head atop a later cross-shaft. Held by a carved base and plinth that are deteriorating through loss of cementitious mortar and becoming structurally unsound. The Diocesan Places of Worship Support Officer, working with Putley Parochial Church Council, is exploring funding to record the rare detailing of the cross then carefully repair the cross base and secure the structure.
