Set in one of the prettiest villages in the area, with a thirteenth-century bridge across the river and a wonderful ford beside it complete with ducks, the Cross stands proudly in the village centre. Just sit on the steps and... More

Interesting to contrast Charing Cross this being in a lovely old village, charming church, ford and old bridge, typical village pub as well, worth a detour to see this small piece of history.

The cross is of historic interest and sits snugly in the centre of the village. Visited along with the ford bridge and church. A visit is worthwhile.

In the centre of the village is this towering monument placed here by King Edward I for his beloved wife Queen Eleanor. She died in 1290 close to Lincoln, and Edward organised a funeral cortege to take her body down to Westminster Abbey.... More
