Fenny Castle Cross: a medieval wayside cross 20 metres north west of Castle Farm, Castle, Wookey - Mendip

A medieval stone cross thought to date back to the early C14. Despite the loss of its shaft, the rest of structure survives in situ though in very bad condition. Several stones show signs of fracture, the joints are open and missing mortar and vegetation is slowly encroaching.
