The Poultry Cross, Salisbury, formerly styled the
Yarn Market, as distinguished from Barnard's Cross and
the Cheese Market, independent of its intrinsic beauty,
has been made an object of considerable dispute among
antiquaries with respect to its origin and identity. The
building is of hexagonal shape, and is supported  by buttress
piers at the angles, flattened ogee arches, and over
each arch is a niche. There is a column in the centre, the 
capital of which is formed by six demi-angels with shields
facing the six arches.
