Cronton Cross, Town End, Cronton.
Cronton Cross, Town End, Cronton.
A medieval cross shaft located on the corner of Hall Lane and Smithy Lane, Cronton. At least one step has sunk below ground level, the second step is made up of five large sandstone blocks and the third step out of four which then supports a square shaft base and a sandstone shaft. The cross itself has been known to be missing for over a hundred years and was originally sited opposite Cronton Hall. This may have been a stopping off place or weeping stone where the funeral procession stopped to rest on route to Farnworth Chapel.
