Notes

Medieval standing stone cross located on the triangular green. The cross is principally 14th century in date with some later additions. It includes the pedestal base, the plinth, the socket stone, the shaft and the ornamental capital. The pedestal base is octagonal in plan. The lower part is constructed of 16 courses of bricks. Immediately above this is an octagonal stone plinth, made up of two courses of sandstone blocks; the upper of which has a moulded overhanging lip. A further course of stone above this is square in plan and supports the socket stone. The socket stone is square at the base and rises through stop angles to octagonal on the upper surface. The shaft is set diagonally into the top of the socket stone and is quatrefoil in section, tapering upwards. At the top of the shaft is an ornamental capital. The full height of the cross is approximately 6.41 metres. The cross is Scheduled and Listed Grade II*.
