St Buryan crosses

St Buryan 07St Buryan church boasts two wheel-headed cross-heads. The first is just outside the churchyard and may well have been a market cross of wayside cross. The carving is indistinct.

The second is inside the churchyard and is mounted on a positive ziggurat of stone. This bears a clear image of a crucified Christ on one side and five bosses, apparently representing the five wounds of Christ, on the other.
