Queen Charlton cross
Queen Charlton cross
The village is an old and largely unaltered example, dating from before the Domesday records. The church in the background, St Margaret's, is twelfth century, whereas the large cross is late mediaeval. It used to be on a road junction a short distance to the southwest of its present position, but appears to have been relocated here in honour of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. The cross itself is a fairly simple Latin affair, with plain stone blocks forming a calvary and a relatively unadorned cross; whilst at the crossroads, it had a few brick courses.
