Plinth with 4 statues of seated monarchs under canted hoods with ogee finials, pinnacles between, and a square spirelet with crocketed ribs and a foliate finial. The original cross was carved in 1373, removed to College Green in 1733, and again to Stourhead in 1768, where it still stands. The replacement, which had 7 statues, stood on College Green until replaced by the statue of Queen Victoria (qv). The truncated cross came to Berkeley Square in 1950.
