The Market Cross
TQ 5203 39/74 13.10.52


The only remaining market cross in Sussex, other than the great example
at Chichester. Stone base and shaft of the medieval cross on a modern brick
plinth. The cross itself is missing, but the cornice-like stone at the
top was added in 1833, when the old steps were removed.
