10/133 Granite trough about 8 metres
- east of Vicarage Gatehouse


Octagonal granite trough, believed to be the socket-stone of the medieval village
cross. The trough now has a shallow circular hollow on top with an outlet hole in
centre and another in front. It is supplied with water from a cast-iron pipe in the
Vicarage garden wall. In front of it is a granite cobbled pavement with a kerb of
large, roughly-shaped granite blocks.
