Market cross. Probably erected c1295 in former market place to
east of Church of St Peter; removed to Godley Lane c1617, and
thence to this site in 1881. Roughly-hewn millstone grit
monolith on low chamfered square base. Rectangular in section
and approximately 3m high, tapering towards a mutilated
wheel-head top which has a small raised hemisphere in the
centre of each face but now lacks the horizontal spokes and
the outer ring (only the stumps remaining). Although mutilated
and ex situ, a rare and important survival in this county.
