LS25 (west side)
2/9 Market Cross beside
south gate to Church
3.2.67 of St. Ricarius (Formerly
listed as Market Cross)


Former market cross. Probably C17, relocated and restored in 1911. Magnesian
limestone. Two circular steps, a square pedestal brought to an octagon, a
shaft in 2 parts, square in section but with stop-chamfered corners, and a
moulded square cap to a top with 4 arched faces, all these with carving (front
and back faces have crosses, others are indecipherable); set into the bottom
of the shaft, a lettered brass plaque stating that the cross was removed during
plague in 1644, and restored by public subscription to commemorate the coronation
of King George V in 1911.
