Description"The base of the cross is Medieval and the shaft and top dates from the Victorian era. Market crosses were well-known focal points, sometimes used to calculate distances between towns. Varying from simple to elaborate styles, some market crosses were put on arched bases large enough to give shelter to traders. After the Reformation, the large plinths which bore the crosses were used to deliver proclamations." Photo by Maigheach-gheal, 2011.
