ELEANOR CROSS, Hardingstone

One of three surviving Eleanor Crosses from the 12 ordered by Edward I to commemorate his deceased wife, Eleanor. Eleanor died at Harby in 1290 and a cross was subsequently erected at every point where the cortege carrying her body rested on its journey to Westminster. The other three surviving crosses are at Geddington and Waltham Cross; the final cross was at Charing, London.

The Hardingstone Cross is on the eastern side of London Road (the A508) very close to the junction and roundabout with the A45. There is parking in a residential area opposite. Post code is approximate.
