Luscombe Cross



Wayside cross and guide post. Probably C15 and C16. Head and top of shaft
renewed in 1895. Granite. Large octagonal base, battened inwards at top to
rough roll mould. Lower part of shaft with hollow chamfered corners, carved
on 4 sides with the letters B, K, D and T in upper case without serifs. These
