Listing Text

Cross House
SU 4311 4/112


Mediaeval. Probably originally the base of the old boundary cross at Itchenworth.
From the C16 at least it was used as a circular stone shelter with seats for
those waiting to be ferried across the Itchen. It is mentioned as a weather
house in 1577. In 1634 it was repaired and is dated 1634 with the initials
of Peter Clungeon, the Mayor of the time. Stone rubble walls with ashlar
quoins to a height of about 5 ft in the shape of a cross.
