Listing Text

2/167 Gatepost on road from Widecombe to
- Natsworthy, at south-west side of
the entrance to the lane to
Kingshead Farmhouse
- II

Gatepost. Possibly medieval. A slightly tapering granite monolith, roughly oblong
in section and about 1.5 metres high. At the top of the north-east face, above the
gate-catch, is an incised cross. Mr E N Masson Phillips says that it "may be of
significance since it stands close to the fifteenth century Churchway".
