PONTEFRACT

SE 42 SE FERRYBRIDGE ROAD (south side) 3/22 Stump Cross 29.7.50 II

Socket stone of medieval wayside cross. Possibly C12. Grey ashlar limestone. Rectangular plan, approximately 600 millimetres by 500 millimetres and about 350 millimetres high, with a large square socket in the top side. On each side are three round-topped recessed panels, forming an arcade, the spacing closer on the narrower sides. The stone lies within a railed enclosure, with a canted ashlar coping supporting early-C20 circular wrought-iron bars, bent outwards at the top, with mid and top rails, and spear finials to corner standards. Inside the enclosure a tree and saplings are growing. The cross base lies on the boun- dary of the Borough of Pontefract, at the junction of an ancient boundary lane with a main road. In Pontefract Museum (qv) are two fragments of the cross shaft, one formerly in Darrington Church and the other in a barn at Bubwith Farm; one shows a figure on a horse, the other a seated figure.
