A farmer remembers that it was snagged ("rabaillée", as they say in patois), in the 1970s, by a very long tree trunk whilst ploughing. It was found at the crossroads of the Chartrie and Fresselines roads, in the bushes.

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.
