Tall, square-section, brick pier has moulded Beerstone base and cap and contains a
rectangular plaque on each face. Above the cap is a Beerstone pedestal, square in
section with a soffit-moulded cap and on top of this sits a small latin cross on a
plain stepped base. The sides of the pedestal and the plaques are inscribed in
Roman serif upper and lower case lettering. The plaques indicate the routes whilst
the pedestal contains appropriate quotations from prayers.

paths are peace.

commandments, for therein is our desire.

The North Side: Bicton, Ottery, Honiton. O hold up our goings in thy paths that our
footsteps slip not.
Bicton Cross was undoubtedly erected by the Rolles of Bicton House (q.v)
