Carved stone fragment with representation of the Crucifixion. Possibly C12; formerly set in wall of Neasham Hill but moved to present position c.1983. Sandstone. 0.75-metre high rectangular block on late C20 stone base. Worn figures in relief representing: Crucifixion of Christ on front; draped figure on rear; a pilgrim (?) with staff and part of a Latin inscription on sides.
