SO 79 NE BADGER C.P. BADGER

7/54 Churchyard Cross about
5m south-east of the
- chancel of the Church
of St. Giles
G.V.
II*

Cross. Medieval, probably C14 or C15. Sandstone. Shaft and socket
stone. The shaft is approximately 4m high, very weathered and badly
split down the middle; at the top it broadens out for the cross head;
the square socket stone is plain with chamfered corners. The cross head,
which is said to have had a Crucifixion on one side and 2 saints on the
other, was removed in late C19 as it had become unsafe; its present
whereabouts is unknown. It is also traditionally said that the cross
once stood in the road. Cranage, Vol.111 p.174.
