SOURTON SX 59 SW

8/119 Sourton Down Cross - 22.2.67

- II

Wayside Cross. May originally have been an early Christian stone converted to a cross in late medieval times. Roughly squared granite Latin cross with very short arms. The shaft bears an inscription which runs in 3 lines downwards but is virtually illegible although it has been interpreted as a personal name preceded by a title of authority accompanied by a symbol of Christianity. The cross has later had the initials of Hatherleigh, Okehampton, Tavistock and Launceston inscribed on its various faces as a guide-post. Source: Dartmoor Crosses - F H Starkey.
