|Cross shaft fragment.
|churchyard at Brailsford.
|Cross shaft fragment with carvings on it, dated to about the tenth century.
|At the top of this fragment there is a rectangular section, which was the shaft of the cross. This has plait-work on it.
|Two bands of cable moulding mark the division of the two parts of the shaft.
|The lower part was probably the actual foot of the cross. This has a band of random interlace, with volutes and pellets, which
encircles the upper portion. This is interrupted by the figure of a warrior holding a sword in his right hand, and he has
a small round object in his left, possibly a target. He may have a mail-coat and close cap. There is a bit of plait-work over
his right shoulder, which is filling the empty space.
