(NT 54071564) CROSS (NR)

OS 6" map (1923)

Cross, Cavers. All that is left of this cross is the moulded base which lies in pieces, held together by a metal band, within the policies of Cavers House (RCAHMS 1956 No. 131) and less than 100 yds. NNE of the church (No.130). The base is circular, measuring about 2 ft. 1 1/2 in. in diameter by 1 ft. 2 in. high, and it has evidently supported a column about 12 in. in diameter. On its upper surface there are four dowel-holes.

RCAHMS 1956, visited 1933

The cross remains as described above.
