Eleanor Cross, Geddington

The Eleanor crosses were a series of twelve tall and lavishly decorated stone monuments topped with crosses in a line down part of the east of England. They were erected by King Edward I after the death of his wife Eleanor, and they mark the nightly resting-places along the route taken when her body was transported to London.

The Geddington Cross is one of the best remaining of these crosses.
