ST03SW NETTLECOMBE CP RALEIGH'S CROSS

7/39 Raleigh's Cross

22.5.69

- II*

Boundary Cross. C13. Red sandstone. Remains of square shaft set in octagonal socket, damaged, about 700 mm. high. Pooley illustrates the cross with broached corners to the socket which rests on a square base, perhaps now concealed beneath the earth. The cross was first refered to in 1425-6 when it stood to the North at the junction of 5 ways, (now 4), by a dangerous bog. It was moved to its present position in the late C18 - early C19. (VCH Somerset, Vol 5, forthcoming; Pooley, Old Crosses of Somerset, 1877).
