This fragment of a Class III cross-slab was found being used as the lintel of a well in the garden of Carpow House. The missing section of the cross-slab is thought to have been built into a steading on the Carpow Estate at NO 22532 18192.
Measuring around 0.7m long, the front is decorated with interlaced Pictish beasts on the right hand side with a recessed ornamental border of spirals around the edge of the cross. The left hand side has been damaged.
On the rear of the slab to the left of the shaft of the cross is a stag surrounded in part by a border of interlacing, below which is what may be a horse decorated with scrolls.
The fragment was moved some time before 1970 and sat at the bottom of the Mugdrum Cross in the grounds of Mugdrum House. It is now held in private ownership at Mugdrum House.
