Department of Environment, 1995, Churchyard Cross 6 metres south of Satterleigh Church (Schedule Document). SDV345145.

Churchyard cross 6 metres south of Satterleigh church. This monument includes the remains of a churchyard cross in the form of a fragment of shaft of a type found throughout Devon and thought to date to the 14th to 15th centuries, set on a later pedestal. The shaft fragment represents half of an octagonal shaft, which is square at the base with long pointed spurs, above which it becomes octagonal. The base width is 0.26 metres, the cross is 0.12 metres thick and attains a height of 0.49 metres. The shaft is probably not precisely on its original site and is cemented to a more recent small pedestal which measures 0.2 metres square. There are two drill holes in the shaft which may indicate secondary use as a gatepost at one time. All fenceposts and metalling within the area of the cross's protective margin are excluded from the scheduling, although the ground beneath is included. The cross is Listed Grade II.
