8/96 Weeping Cross
approximately 5 metres
north of Church of All
15.3.66 (formerly listed as
Weeping cross in


Base of weeping cross. Medieval. Gritstone. 2 circular blocks of stone,
the lower having 8 recesses with segmental lower edges and a continuous roll
moulding toeacharras. The upper stone has slightly inward-bowed sides; the
overall height is approximately 1.5 metres and there is a rectangular cavity
in the top. The recesses are said to allow the faithfull to kneel in, but
assuming that the cross originally stood higher (possibly on another plinth)
the recesses are more likely to be for the bowed head. The church (qv) was
built in c1395; it is uncertain whether the cross stood on the earlier
church site further south and was moved, or whether it was already on the
site or newly erected at that date. Scheduled Ancient Monument No 417.
