SW 63 NW
(west side)
Cornish cross in flowerbed on
east side of recreation ground
approx.75 metres north of gateway
(presumably one of those formerly
listed as "2 Stone Crosses,
Trevu House")

Head and part of shaft of Cornish cross. Medieval. Roughly-hewn granite.
Rectangular section. Approx. ¾ metre high, with slightly bulbous round-
headed top (minimal wheelhead), raised Latin cross on west face and raised
greek cross on east face. Now set in a square granite base, beside which
is a sparately- mounted bronze plaque lettered: "THE OLD CAMBORNE
REMOVED FROM TREVU ON/ THE 22nd OCTOBER, 1935". The item is one
of two crosses formerly in the grounds of Trevu House; the other is now
in the forecourt to Camborne Methodist Church, Chapel Street (q.v.).
