The Site Of Maybole Town Cross
The Site Of Maybole Town Cross
The small iron cross in the road marks the position of the old Town Cross. Even though the High Street was much wider than it is nowadays, the Cross was removed in 1773 because it was obstructing the traffic. (Source: "Maybole - Carrick's Capital", by James T Gray). The A77 road goes along Maybole High Street and the high volume of traffic, much of it heavy lorries for the Irish ferries on Loch Ryan, has produced repeated calls for a town by-pass.
