Restoration / Repairs

Date of restoration and/or repairs :

This cross has been repositioned, although it is not known whether it is in its original location.

The study by the Territorial Services of Architecture and Heritage mentions a reassembly on a cement base bearing the date of 1989 accompanied by the initials of the village inhabitants.

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 in the heart of the hamlet of Josnon.
