1954 ALVELEY Butter Cross

SO 78 NE 29/26 9.3.70.

II

2.

A plain stone shaft about 5 feet high on a circular base with round head retaining on each face traces of a Maltese Cross. Although supposed to mark the site of an ancient open-air market place, it is almost a mile from the village, suggesting use as a boundary cross in time of plague to be more likely.
