Listing Text


2/26 Cross approximately 9
- metres south of nave of Church of
St Michael


Churchyard cross. Erected 1881 using a probably C15 shaft. Granite. The cross
stands a little over 3m high. The medieval shaft is square in section at the bottom
with chamfered edges with roll stops and it tapers slightly towards the top. The
1881 head makes it a plain Latin cross. The socket stone has a chamfered top edge
and is inscribed. It records that the cross was restored in 1881 in memory of
Abraham and Jane Smith of Treasbeare. The plinth is made up of 3 octagonal steps,
the middle riser bearing a Biblical quotation. The shaft was apparently used as a
seat at Treasbeare before the restoration of the cross here.
