Considering that the cross is over 700 years old, it is in good condition and beautifully situated in the heart of Geddington. Edward I erected these statues in memory of his wife Eleanor, a rare example of love in an arranged royal marriage. The site...More

Stunning sculpture and memorial site. Well worth visit to Geddington to view this memorial to mark a stopping of point of Queen Eleanor on her final journey. Free to admire the beauty and preserved by the local authorities.
