The remains of a medieval cross located at the junction between Tanpit Lane and the road past Wentbank House to Walden Stubbs. The cross is sited 550 metres north east of the core of Norton Prior and 150 metres north of the bridge across the River Went, and is thought to be a wayside cross related to the priory. It survives as a socketed cross base with the 0.35 metres weathered stub of the cross shaft. The base is 0.7 metres square and is carved from a single piece of limestone with chamfered corners producing an octagonal upper face. The cross shaft stub is central and 0.25 metres square. The cross is not lined up with the adjacent roads, but is orientated to the cardinal compass points. Scheduled and Listed Grade II.
