The Square, Burton-in-Kendal
The Market Cross was erected in the 18C. Burton-in-Kendal was granted a corn market by Charles II in 1661, but it did not become important. The cross has a tapering column of dressed limestone on a chamfered base set on three octagonal steps. The south-west face of the second step has indentations said to be remains of leg-irons used as stocks. Behind is a terrace of four early 19C houses, one of which was the post office. Each pair of houses is three windows wide, with two doors under a central pediment. The Royal Hotel was built in the late 18C as a coaching inn, as Burton was a staging post. There is a nice series of Venetian windows facing The Square.
