Listing Text

The war memorial stands alongside the Grade II*-listed church of St John the Baptist, which stands well outside the village. It takes the form of a limestone cross on an octagonal shaft of c. 1920, set in an octagonal, perhaps C15, medieval churchyard cross socket with a square base mounted on two octagonal steps (c. 1920). An inscription in raised lettering running around the second step reads THIS CROSS WAS RESTORED IN MEMORY OF THOSE MEN OF SLIPTON, WHO DIED IN THE GREAT WAR 1914-1919. The names of those who fell are listed below the inscription.
