Caledon (Aughnacloy)

Above the vaulted arch over a well in the grounds of Caledon Demesne a cross-shaft and a head have been set up. These remains are said to have been removed from Clonarb (see below). They represent parts of two monuments, the head being that of a smaller cross than the shaft was designed to support.

The shaft is an almost square column rising from a slightly splayed plinth and finished on the upper part by a bank or collar. The angles of the shaft are rounded and each side is treated as a single full-length panel, delimited by a shallow rounded moulding. In the middle of each panel is a large roundel or medallion containing a decorative device.
