Description

17th century column with 1976 base and finial by Gordon Burnett, Edinburgh, re-erected 1976. 3 circular steps with plain 12ft high columnar shaft, moulded cap and stone lion holding shield.

Statement of Special Interest

The Market Cross, first erected in the 17th century, was removed when weekly markets no longer held and lost until the 1970s. With funding from the BBC after making the film "The Little Minister" in Glamis, the Cross and new lion were unveiled by Fergus, 17th Earl of Strathmore and dedicated by Rev Dr Henderson. A nearby stone is inscribed "Nation Shall Speak Peace Unto Nation". Previously listed under 'Glamis Castle' where it lay "recumbent in undergrowth 40 yards north of South Lodge".

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see www.historicenvironment.scot. Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
