BOVEY TRACEY MORETONHAMPSTEAD ROAD (south SX 8178 side) Bovey Tracey Bovey Stone, in garden wall of 11/78 Cross Cottage about 7 metres - south-east of Furzeleigh Lane 4.4.78 (formerly listed as Bovey Cross) GV II

2 pieces of shaped granite, probably the remains of a medieval cross moved to this position in a high rubble stone wall after road widening in 1815. A roughly angled piece of granite, probably a former socket-stone, stands on a later rubble plinth.

Upon it is an upright fragment of granite with chamfered edges, believed to be part of a cross-shaft. Incised on face of latter is a small cross, added in 1815.
