14/108 Wetheral Cross


Cross formerly maypole. Circa 1844 on steps of 1814 for Henry Howard. Red
sandstone 3½ metres high. 2 squared step slabs support chamfered plinth
hollowed to form shaft socket: squared column with chamfered corners and head
carved to give a quatra-form cross. Formerly the steps were in the centre of
The Green and formed the base for a wooden maypole, which was erected at the
expense of Henry Howard, of nearby Corby Castle, in 1814. Later replaced by
stone cross, when moved to its present location. This is not a market cross as
Wetheral was not a market town.
