NHER Number:13388

Name:Site of a medieval cross (Horsey, poorly located)

Summary

Old documents record a medieval cross standing on the site that separated Horsey from Winterton and Waxham parishes. The site of the cross is unclear.

Images - none

Location

Parish:HORSEY, NORTH NORFOLK, NORFOLK

Full description

'Near Hundred Stream'.
'Headless Cross' mentioned in a lease of 1542.
See (S1).

(S1) also quotes a document of 1609 saying that this cross divided Horsey from Winterton and Waxham.

This is very odd, even if it does mean Waxham Parva, as this was in the opposite direction! Perhaps a detached portion of the parish?
