Stump Cross, Mount Ephraim
An information board TL7791 : Medieval wayside cross, information board on the bridleway highlights the presence of the remains of the medieval wayside cross in the woods. It is believed to date from the 1300s and to have originally been 4m high. At that time the area was not wooded and it would have been prominent on the skyline. The area was one of pilgrimage until the commissioners of Henry VIII destroyed the shrine at Walsingham. The cross was believed to have been broken either at this point or in 1643 when parliament ordered all crosses were pulled down.
