Notes

The remains of a Mediaeval wayside cross, situated by the roadside near Langford, half a mile south of Bow, on the Station Road, consisting of a modern pedestal and socket-stone, in which is mounted an ancient shaft, of rectangular section at the base and with chamfered edges above rounded stops. The upper part of the shaft and the head and arms are new. The ancient portion of the shaft is said to have been part of the pavement in the village, and to have been brought from Glannaborough. It was rescued and restored in 1921.
