I believe the word 'Cross' in a place name is as likely to be an
ancient cross, although now there may not be a crossroads, there is
likely to be a track or path. Certainly the examples I know of Beetor
Cross nr Moretonhampstead is such a place, as i believe is Ruggs
Cross, often these are marked with an old stone cross, the example at
Beetor is a wonderful one.
