High cross. 1851. By John Norton. Carving by Harry Hems of
Exeter. Limestone ashlar. Plinth with 4 statues of seated
monarchs under canted hoods with ogee finials, pinnacles
between, and a square spirelet with crocketed ribs and a
foliate finial. The original cross was carved in 1373, removed
to College Green in 1733, and again to Stourhead in 1768,
where it still stands. The replacement, which had 7 statues,
stood on College Green until replaced by the statue of Queen
Victoria (qv). The truncated cross came to Berkeley Square in
1950.
