Castle Combe Market Cross

A market cross is a structure which marks a market square in market towns. Market crosses can be found in most market towns in Britain including the market cross in Castle Combe (see below). Castle Combe's market cross was erected in the 14th century AD when the privilege to hold a weekly market in Castle Combe was granted.

Castle Combe's market cross is located where the town's three principal streets converge. Visitors to Castle Combe may also want to visit nearby St Andrew's Church or Malmesbury Abbey.
