Title:The Ancient Stone Crosses of Devon: Part I
Originator:Masson Phillips, E. N.
Date:1937
Summary:In the churchyard by the west gate. Type B, "restored" as D. An ancient octagonal pedestal of four stages, and octagonal socket-stone with chamfered top edge, of Roborough Down stone, bearing a modern octagonal shaft, tapering upwards, of three pieces of granite, with an elaborate modern "lantern" head. The ancient pedestal and socket-stone formerly stood on the village green (now built upon) opposite the churchyard gate. In 1898 it was restored by the addition of twelve new granite stones and provided with the new shaft and head as a memorial of Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee. In the churchyard close by there is a sundial fixed on top of an ancient sculptured capital which is mounted on an octagonal granite shaft set up on a small circular base of slate stones. The sculptured capital is of Roborough Down stone (as is the ancient cross base). May have formed a part of the cross head.
