Holy Trinity Church, Bosbury (Churchyard Cross)

Recent Photograph of Holy Trinity Church (Churchyard Cross) (Bosbury)

The Churchyard Cross is of a type common in the 14th century, and in the 15th century marked the final stage in Holy Week processions. It escaped being demolished by Parliamentary soldiers during the Civil War, thanks to pleas from the Vicar to leave it alone, although legend has it that was defaced with non-Christian “graffiti” by Cromwellian soldiers - which perhaps fortunately is now barely readable.

Note also the fine Perpendicular window of the Morton Chapel to the right of the porch.
