Notes

A medieval wayside cross situated on a steep bank on Treloy Hill. The cross survives as the lower part of a granite shaft set in a granite base. The shaft measures 0.38 metres high by 0.19 metres wide and is octagonal in section. The base measures 0.6 metres square and is 0.3 metres high. The wayside cross is situated on a steep grass bank on a bend on the A3059, the road between St Columb Major and Newquay. The cross was first mentioned in 1858 by the antiquarian, Blight, as being situated on the roadside between St Columb Major and St Columb Minor. Later, in 1884 it was noticed that the letters 'TS' were incised on the base, suggesting that the cross had been used as a boundary stone at some time in the past. In 1992 the shaft was broken off the base, but was repaired with a stainless steel pin and mortar. The octagonal shape of the shaft suggets this wayside cross has a late medieval date. Scheduled.
