There were thoughts to remove this and place it elsewhere replacing it with the War Memorial, (which also forms a cross), which is at present nearby. The plans have been shelved as of July 2012. The "cross" in this photo is not stone, but concrete, and was found in the 1950's buried in a garden nearby before being erected here. Concrete has, however, been around a goodly while so it might be old! The area is called "The Cross". But that term was used around road crossings. This edifice does not appear in turn of the century photos. It could have been buried to hide it in the reformation. Are you an expert, if so please visit and comment. July 2012.
