Stobs Cross (Hexhamshire and District)

The remains of a medieval wayside cross stand here. The socket stone is 0.7m square and has a shaft 0.5m high standing in it. Recently, traces of two possible cup marks have been noticed, carved into the shaft, suggesting this part of the cross has come from some other, prehistoric, monument. This is a Grade II Listed Building protected by law.
