SE 42 SE FERRYBRIDGE ROAD
Socket stone of medieval wayside cross. Possibly C12. Grey ashlar limestone.
Rectangular plan, approximately 600 millimetres by 500 millimetres and about
350 millimetres high, with a large square socket in the top side. On each side
are three round-topped recessed panels, forming an arcade, the spacing closer on
the narrower sides. The stone lies within a railed enclosure, with a canted
ashlar coping supporting early-C20 circular wrought-iron bars, bent outwards at
the top, with mid and top rails, and spear finials to corner standards. Inside
the enclosure a tree and saplings are growing. The cross base lies on the boun-
dary of the Borough of Pontefract, at the junction of an ancient boundary lane
with a main road. In Pontefract Museum (qv) are two fragments of the cross
shaft, one formerly in Darrington Church and the other in a barn at Bubwith
Farm; one shows a figure on a horse, the other a seated figure.
