Cross In Hand is situated at the junction the A267 running between Tunbridge Wells and Eastbourne, and the B2102 which terminates in Cross In Hand but joins the A22 in Uckfield. The village has a high street on the B2102 road that links Cross in Hand to Uckfield. Retail shops include a petrol station, wooden furniture shops, a post office, a motorcycle shop, a bakery, and a funeral director's. The Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Bartholomew and there is one pub, the Cross in Hand. Other village facilities include a village hall, rugby football, bowls and tennis clubs.
The village historically provided services to the iron trade, and has had a windmill called the "New Mill" at the current site since 1868 although it was built in Framfield in 1855. The reason for this time delay is that the mill was originally placed a quarter of a mile from its current location in its year of construction, and was moved on the command of the local squire at the time, Squire Hurth.
The English Place-Name Society gives the earliest reference to the village as Cruce Manus, the latin for Cross in Hand in 1547. The name is believed to be based on the legend that the Crusaders assembled here before sailing for the Holy Land from Rye to fight Saladin.
