Notes

A standing cross of red sandstone located within the churchyard of St John the Baptist's Church. Although located within the churchyard the cross is also near the centre of Halesowen High Street, and may have additionally acted as a market cross. The cross is of stepped form, and is principally medieval in date with some later additions including steps, a socket stone, a shaft, knop and head. The cross is stablized by an iron cage and ties. Scheduled.
