Details

The Highcross is a stone pillar that is all that is left of a market shelter that once stood in the centre of Leicester, then Highcross Street. The location of the original market cross is now marked by three paving stones set into the tarmac of the road carriageway, several metres to the north of the modern intersection of High Street, Highcross Street, and St Nicholas Place.
