Notes

Remains of Early Medieval Cross. Part of a richly decorated, but much mutilated, granite cross shaft stands at the head of the ornamental lake near the West Lodge at Glynn. The fragment was discovered in 1925 being used as a side piece of a mantlepiece in a ruined cottage on Bofindle Farm near Mount in Warleggan parish. It was brought to Glynn by the late Lord Vivian. Only the surface of the cross which faces the carriageway remains complete and Henderson considered it to be the side and not the face of a cross shaft. It is thought to be part of the cross that originally stood on the site of Warleggan church, the "vine" scroll carving dating it not later than the 10th century.
