SX 6493 - 6593 SOUTH TAWTON SOUTH ZEAL

8/235 Village Cross 22.2.67 GV II*

Village cross and plinth. Probably C15. Granite ashlar. Complete late medieval cross, socket stone and plinth. 3-step plinth of granite ashlar with bull-nosed steps. Socket stone is square with chamfered top edges. The cross stands approximately 2.5m high. It is a plain-cross originally made from a single piece of granite with chamfered head arms and slightly tapering shaft with roll stops. The head is now a separate piece. This is an integral part of the South Zeal townscape. It is very special being one of the few medieval boroughs in Devon where a significant number of its late medieval houses survive to a greater or lesser extent.
