The columns are now supported on stone plinths but originally the area of the cross was raised on steps, the columns resting on wood bases, and in the centre was a prisoner's cage for temporary detention of delinquents, which was removed in 1836, the steps being done away with in 1867, when an earlier dungeon was discovered underneath, said to be the remains of the earlier cross destroyed by the fire of 1688. Scheduled AM. Nos 1 to 11 (odd), Nos 11A, 13 and 17 to 21 (odd) form a group together with the butter cross.
