The Market Cross : Castle Combe
The Market Cross : Castle Combe
This historic monument is in the centre of the village. It is believed to date from the 14th century when the privilege to hold a weekly market was first granted. Just below this there is also a structure sometimes referred to as the 'buttercross', which was in fact for tethering and mounting horses.
