Full description

Masson Phillips, E. N., 1937, The Ancient Stone Crosses of Devon: Part I, 336 (Article in Serial). SDV240502.

(SX 534903) Situated on the green, near the road. "A roughly shaped square socket-stone, with a square socket hole. The stone is broken across diagonally".

Gerrard, S., 1993-2002, Monument Protection Programme Alternative Action Report, 2002? (Report - non-specific). SDV145710.

Considered under the Monument Protection Programme but not recommended for scheduling as no longer extant.

This record may refer to the same feature as MDV57368; unclear after much searching if this is the case so both records have been kept. Both use the same Masson Philips reference as their initial source and both refer to the same Ordnance Survey card number, but this record notes the following:
"(7/3/1951) This antiquity could not be located; local enquiries were fruitless" (Ordnance Survey).
This could not be located on the card or Pastscape. Gerrard was unable to locate in 2002 so perhaps this does record a different feature as the restored section of the cross found at the Jubilee Hall should have been noticeable at that time.
