3/112 Sebastopol Cross and
base, approximately
3 metres to east of
Vestry of Church of
St Michael


Memorial. Mid C19 and earlier. Ashlar and wrought iron. Octagonal stone
base of 5 steps surmounted by Sebastopol Cross. Globe supporting cross.
Arms of cross perforated, and terminating in quatrefoils. 3 spikes in each
angle between arms of cross. Enclosed within low rubble wall with ashlar
coping, supporting plain wrought-iron railings, the bars with hammered ends,
and fimbriated finials to corner posts. The cross was originally on the
roof of the chapel of the White Barracks in Sebastapol, which was taken
when the British forces sacked the town during the Crimean War in 1854. It
was brought back to Spennithorne by General Sir Charles van Straubenzee of
Spennithorne House, who commanded a Brigade in the Light Division during the
campaign. It is now mounted above the van Straubenzee family vault, and
their names are engraved on the sides of the stepped stone base.
