Eleanor Cross (Geddington)

The Eleanor Cross is a historic and elegantly sculpted monument in the Northamptonshire village of Geddington.

It stands in the village square.

The cross is one of twelve erected by Edward III in 1290 to commemorate his wife Eleanor of Castile. At each place where her cortege rested on its journey from Harby to Westminster Abbey, a cross was erected.

Only three still stand, the others being at Hardingstone and Waltham Cross.
