Queen Eleanor's 12 Crosses, Stamford, Lincolnshire

The Eleanor Crosses were 12 stone monuments erected for King Edward I's wife Queen Eleanor following her death in 1290. Each monument represents a resting place used when taking her body to London.

Stamford erected a modern monument inspired by the "lost cross". It can be found in Sheepmarket, rather than the original location and the carved detail is based on the fragment in the Stamford Museum.
