Notes

A medieval wayside cross situated on the top of a hedge in Lelant Lane. The cross, which is Listed Grade II, survives as an upright granite head and shaft mounted on a modern granite base. The upper limb is missing, and the edges of the side limbs are chamfered, as are the edges of the shaft. There is a relief figure of Christ with outstretched arms along the side limbs; the tunic and legs extend down the shaft. The head has unenclosed arms, a form called a 'Latin' cross, its principal faces orientated north east-south west. The cross was first recorded at the end of the 19th century as being built into the hedge, it became buried in the hedge in the early part of the 20th century but was rediscovered in 1956 and the St Ives Old Cornwall Society restored and re-erected it in its present location in 1964. Scheduled.
