Two Thorns Cross Socket Stone

Acknowledgement: Brought to our attention by Steve Grigg of Dartmoor Explorations; “Close to the two thorns is a stone setting (cross socket), which was discovered in 1982 by Dr Andrew Fleming of the University of Sheffield. Fleming and his co-researcher Nicholas Ralph suggested in a publication ‘Report on Medieval Settlement and Land Use on Holne Moor, Dartmoor: the Landscape Evidence’ that: “This stone setting was the site of the most easterly cross on the route across Dartmoor, and that the route was established before 1239.”
