Market Cross, Milnthorpe

The Market Cross in Milnthorpe dates from the 18th century, with the cross repaired or replaced in the early 19th century. In 1845 the cross was taken down and a lock-up built on its site, when there was rioting during the construction of the railway. The cross was reerected on top of the lock-up. The lock-up was taken down in 1862 and the market cross was replaced in its original position.[1] The market cross is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
