Salisbury's Poultry Cross

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Poultry Cross in Salisbury used to give shelter to market traders. When the first market cross was erected on this site, it would have been close to the centre of the market square. But gradually lines of market stalls developed into permanent rows of shops, infilling a lot of the square and separating the cross from the market. The present shelter is 15th Century, but the decorative topping of flying buttresses was added in 1852 in emulation of a cross at Chichester.
