About the memorial: Memorial was originally a cross atop a slender octagonal stone column on a 5 feet square plinth, over all height around 18 feet, on Clipsham stone. The cross was a Purbeck marble Saxon cross with a floral decoration. Set on a paved surround. Presumably after a road crash, the column has been replaced by a plain metal Latin cross on the original plinth. The original paved area is no longer apparent.
