Details

STEEPLE ASHTON HIGH STREET ST 9056 (east side) 13/239 The Market Cross 11.9.68 GV II

Market cross on village green. 1679, restored various dates in C18 and C19. Tuscan column on stepped base, plinth square with fielded panels and pilasters. Dates of repairs and restorations inscribed around top of column. Block sundial on top with wrought iron 'hands' and ball finial with iron cross and crown. Also known as a staple and it is suggested that the village may take its name from this, although the church's former spire or steeple is more likely to have distinguished Steeple Ashton from West Ashton. Scheduled Ancient Monument, Wiltshire, No 251.
