4/36 Socket-stone of cross 7m north
Church Tower of St Mary the
- Virgin


Large roughly-shaped block of granite in churchyard about seven metres north of
church tower, now the base of a C19 cross erected in honour of the Rev J H Reibey
in 1884. The base 'formerly stood outside the churchyard gate, near the conduit',
and formed the socket-stone of a cross, part of the shaft of which now lies next to
it. The top corners of the socket-stone are carved with large convex stops,
somewhat mutilated. Set on a low wide C19 stone plinth. The C19 cross does not
form part of the listing. Source: E Masson Phillips in Transactions of Devonshire
Association, 1937, p.325.
