SE 12 SW
3/58 Cross base in Churchyard
of St. Matthew's Church
G. V. II*

Anglian cross base. c10 or C11. Solid large stone block with 4 tapering sides
and indented head for cross shaft (now gone). Each of the 4 faces have moulded
edges and carving in relief with foliated vine scroll to 2 sides, one side
blind. That fronting street is divided into 2 panels of interlace of geometric
character. A rare survival, possibly in its original position when it would
have been used as a preaching cross. Of similar character to Walton cross,
