Saxon Cross in Bradbourne Churchyard
Saxon Cross in Bradbourne Churchyard
A well-preserved gritstone Saxon cross shaft which experts date back to the 9th Century or thereabouts, making it one of the oldest surviving Christian relics in the area. The surviving shaft would have almost certainly been topped with a cross of some kind, and on closer inspection you can also see where it has been snapped and repaired about one third of the way up. Believe it or not, part of this priceless artifact was previously in gainful employment as a squeezer stile!
