Notes

A medieval wayside cross situated in Tregaminion chapel yard. It survives as an upright granite shaft with a round, 'wheel' head set on a millstone base. The overall height of the monument is 0.75 metres. Sometime during the 19th century the cross was removed from the roadside and re-erected on the millstone in its present position. It has been suggested that the cross was possibly moved from the road which runs past Tregaminion chapel, a minor road which links Menabilly and Gribben Head to the route between Fowey, an important medieval port on the south coast of Cornwall, and Tywardreath, a medieval settlement. The cross is Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
