Restoration / Repairs

Date of restoration and/or repairs :

In 1990 it was lying flat in the ferns on the bank.

Broken, repaired and reinstalled in 1994, it was cut in two parts during the cleaning of the slope in 2004.

It was fixed again by the ERICA association. It was then broken again by the municipal services and then repaired again.

How it was made

Granite is ubiquitous here, it is everywhere in the fields

Each of the inventoried crosses was made by a different stonemason.

However, it seems that they all used the same model or « pattern ».

Each carver made his sculpture from some local granite stone known as a fieldstone.

Find out more with the expertise of Didier Fauguet, stone sculptor and carver.


Crozant type crosses are located between Oïl and Oc on the territory of the "croissant marchois".

This cross is located on the way to Villeneuve, on the road to Les Jongettes.
