Howick Cross is a landmark and small hamlet in Penwortham, South Ribble, Lancashire, England. It is located just over 2 miles south west of the city of Preston. The hamlet is predominantly made up of a small community, a primary school, various farms and an electrical substation. The community had a population of 354 people in 2001.[2]

The wayside cross, probably medieval, was restored 1919. Only the base is original, a roughly hewn cubeshaped block 75 cm wide and 60 cm deep; this stands on stone plinth which has an inscription stating that it was restored to commemorate peace, 1919; and it carries a cross 1 metre high.

It is located near the village of Hutton. Other nearby communities include the village of New Longton.

Howick was a civil parish from 1866 until 1 April 1934, when it was absorbed into the parish of Penwortham. Howick parish was part of Preston Rural District.[3] The former parish name survives in Howick C E School,[4] the Hutton and Howick Women's Institute (the oldest in Lancashire, founded by suffragette Edith Rigby)[5] and the former railway station.

Hutton and Howick railway station opened on 1 December 1897, on the Preston to Southport railway line. It was renamed New Longton and Hutton on 3 November 1934 and closed, along with the line, on 7 September 1964.[6]
