Geddington Eleanor Cross
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
At the base of the cross on the south west side is a conduit house, built in 1769, making this the only British example of a public water supply incorporated into a royal memorial.
NB. The most famous of the Eleanor Crosses gave its name to Charing Cross, in London. The other two surviving crosses are at Hardingstone, Northamptonshire, and Waltham Cross, Hertfordshire, though neither is as well preserved as the Geddington Cross.
