Stone Cross, South Harton, Lustleigh.
Built into the wall outisde the main gate of South Harton Farm, and has been split down the centre to form a pair of gateposts but the parts are now fitted neatly together. It is a good example of a plain wayside cross and was laced here by a former occupier of the farm, Mr Wills. Total height is 6 feet 3 inches; arms 20 inches accross projecting 8 inches from the shaft. The shaft itself is 13 inches thick (citing Crossing, 1892).
Visited 7/5/1953. The description from the published sources is correct. The cross is in danger, it is encased in ivy and the centre join has been chipped at the base.
