8/113 Pinnacle about 18 metres
- east of St Benet's Abbey


Pinnacle or cross. Medieval, probably C15. Granite. The pinnacle is of roughly
square plan, chamfered and tapered, with broad base. There is a small wheelhead set
on top, with four indentations on the face forming a primitive saltire cross, to
front and rear. There is a vertical ridge carved on the wheelhead, which is
continued down the pinnacle, which forms the shaft for the wheelhead. An image stand
or corbel is attached to the front of the shaft.
This is probably a feature removed from St Benet's Abbey, of uncertain function, but
possibly once at the top of the tower, which has the top part missing.
