4415 HIGH ROAD N17 (East Side) Tottenham -------------- Tottenham High Cross TQ 3389 26/82 22.7.49.
Origins obscure and does not have any apparent connection with crosses set up by Edward I in memory of Queen Eleanor. At first a wooden structure, replaced in 1890 by the present stuccoed brick octagonal tower of 3 stages with short spire above. Plain plinth, other stages have cusped panelling in Gothic style. Crockets up the ridges of the spire.
The descriptive notes should be amended to read:
Circa 1600 brick structure replacing an earlier wooden cross. Covered with stucco in 1809 and subsequently given Gothic decoration of the same material. Octagonal tower of three stages with short spire. Plain plinth. Other stages have cusped panelling. Tower ridges crocketed.
