Further Information

The Plaque Reads:
On this plot of ground stood of old ‘Pauls Cross’ whereat  amid
such Scenes of good and evil as make up human affairs the
conscience of church and nation through five centuries found
public utterance. The first record of this in 1119 A.D. It was rebuilt
by Bishop Kemp in 1449 and was finally removed by order of the
Long Parliament in 1643. This cross was re-erected in its present
form under the will of H.C. Richards to recall and to renew the
ancient memories
