There was a significant religious St Bennett’s Cross situated in old Gorleston. Its location or at least the remains of this antiquity, marked on older Ordnance Survey Maps beside St Andrew’s Church roundabout on the Church Lane and Church Road corner.
St Bennett’s stone Cross, also spelt St Benett’s, was drawn on OS maps into at least the 1950’s. There were other very old and large stone Crosses in Gorleston Parish.

The 1926 OS Map, revised 1938 version, removes any name tag or description of this Christian symbol. Now Saint Benett’s Christian stone Cross has been reduced to just a map symbol “+” (Antiquities, Site of).
+ Cross, Site of 1926 Map but the revised 1946 print at least gives it some dignity back with a bit of a title.
