Listing Text

ST BREWARD HIGHER LANK
SX 07 NE
5/203 Cross and reset dressed stone in
garden to south of Higher Lank
17.12.62 Farmhouse (previously listed as
cross at Higher Lank)
GV II

Cross, remains of carved corbelled bracket and several other pieces of dressed stone.
Medieval. Granite.
Resited wheelhead cross on short shaft with raised rim and Latin cross in relief on
both faces. Also resited granite corbelled bracket of high quality with carved
shield and angel's head. Other pieces of dressed granite include the remains of a
probably battlemented parapet.
Higher Lank Farmhouse (qv) was a house of considerable status which may well have had
a gatehouse and it is possible that some of the dressed granite may have come from
such a building together with the datestone which has been reset in the garden wall
to the front of the house.
