5/7 Challabrook Cross, on public
- footpath about 350 metres north-
east of Challabrook Farm
Cross-shaft, re-set, medieval. Granite. Mutilated cross-shaft with part of cross-
head intact. Right-hand side cut back to form a gatepost (2 iron hinges still in
position). Rectangular in section, tapering slightly on the unaltered left side.
Part of left arm and head of cross survive, much weathered. There are said to be
traces of a cross incised on each face. Metal plaque attached to shaft carries the
'wholly fanciful' inscription: "This old cross once marked the grave of a royalist
officer who fell near here 1645 when Cromwell's troops defeated the Royalists.
