|Type of record:||Monument|
|Name:||Site of a medieval cross (Horsey, poorly located)|
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
|Parish:||HORSEY, NORTH NORFOLK, NORFOLK|
'Near Hundred Stream'.
'Headless Cross' mentioned in a lease of 1542.
(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?
- CROSS (Medieval - 1066 AD to 1539 AD)
