Village Cross, Esh


Esh Cross is located in its original position on a raised area at the southern end of the village green in Esh. It is an important example of a 17th century cross, built during a period when few crosses were being erected in England. The cross is a Scheduled Monument and is also Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
