Manside Cross (Rothley with Hollinghill; Elsdon)

The remains of a medieval cross stand just outside an Iron Age settlement. The socket stone and a stone shaft survive. The shaft was probably reused in post-medieval times as a boundary stone as it is carved with modern initials. Manside Cross is first mentioned in the Border Survey of 1604 and also appears on later maps. This is a Scheduled Monument protected by law.
