SS 3403 HOLSWORTHY THE SQUARE (Centre)
16/69 Market Cross
Market cross. Mid C19. Sandstone ashlar. A square monument with recessed
panels to each face to 5-cusped heads, diagonal hollow mould cornices, set to
moulded plinth on 2 octagonal steps. Above a moulded cornice a truncated
pinnacle with crocketted corners, and small diagonal pinnacles at corners, 2
of these complete, one without cresting and one a stump only. There are no
inscriptions or date to this monument, and it is assumed to be a C19 replacement
of a mediaeval original. The Square is still used for weekly markets.
