Ullard Church & High Cross


Map Reference: S724481 (2724, 1481)

The small nave-and-chancel church at Ullard has a fine Romanesque west doorway. This originally had three orders but the inner order has been completely rebuilt. There is the usual decoration including human and animal heads but it is greatly weathered.



There are some small round-headed windows in the south wall of the nave. The chancel has a later two-light east window and there is a crypt below the altar.



There is a ball-alley attached to the east gable and just outside the SE corner of this is a greatly weathered High Cross.



There is a Crucifixion on one face and some spirals on the base.
