The Buttercross approx. 120 metres to south-west of No. 11 (South Lodge)


Probable cross base with boulder. Possibly C15 or C16. Grey sandstone.
Irregular boulder on 3 circular stone steps. This is possibly a former
cross base from Pitchford churchyard (qv). It might have been moved
to its present location and the boulder added to form a park ornament,
perhaps at the time of George Devey's work at Pitchford Hall (qv) in the
1870's and 1880's. V.C.H., Vol. VIII, p.116.
