Wayside monolithic shaft, with necking and capital. Medieval. Stone monolith of oval form, crudely tapering. Dimensions: Height c 107cm, capital 28cm square. "It is possible that this shaft belongs to the group of pre-conquest shafts of which the pillar of Eliseg is the best known; if so the capital must have been cut down. The hand said to have been carved on one face is not traceable." (RCHM) Scheduled Ancient Monument Dorset No. 137. (RCHM Dorset I, p17 (2))
