Having unaccountably missed the first part, I'm having to exercise considerable self-control not to dive right in, but to carry on working instead....

Oh hurrah! *reads with great delight, starting over from the beginning*

Wemyss, love, I tried to look it up but failed miserably--what's a 'Buttercross'?

*for the rest, mad cackling ensues* Oh dear, the Wights are making a fuss...

See icon.

Have some Buttercrosses: http://www.geograph.org.uk/search.php?i=1852934.

Basically, a buttercross is a market cross, often with an arcaded or covered component, and suitable for the all-weather selling of eggs, milk, butter, and the like on market day. See Somerton for an example: http://www.somertonmuseum.org.uk/index.php?table=subcat&idnum=27.

In many cases, however, esp after a restoration by the Victorians, they are or have become simply overblown ornate market crosses, as in Winchester.
