7/195 Wayside cross at N.G.R. SP2908
27.8.57 (Formerly listed as Cross)
Not shown on O.S. map.
Wayside cross. Apparently early to mid-C14 but possibly early C19 reusing
medieval stonework. Limestone. Short octagonal shaft with gabled canopy having
small circular socket to top on octagonal plinth with blind cinquefoil-headed
panel to each side. Base of 6 wide steps forming irregular octagon. The cross is
not marked on detailed estate maps of the area made in 1788 and 1795 nor do the
accompanying terriers give any indication of its existence through field names.
The cross was drawn by J.C, Buckler in 1825, the year in which most of the old
church at Churchill (q.v.) was demolished, and it is possible that fragments
from there were used to make up the cross.
