ELEANOR’S CROSS, GEDDINGTON

Eleanor's Cross in Geddington is the best preserved of the 3 remaining 12 Eleanor Crosses that Edward I had erected to mark the resting place of his beloved wife's body on its journey to London after she died at Harby, near Lincoln, in 1290.  The cross is in the centre of the village. The other two crosses are at Hardingstone and Waltham Cross. The most famous of the 12 is Charing Cross, London.
