Ancient cross near Trengwainton Carn
Ancient cross near Trengwainton Carn
A medieval wayside preaching cross. The shaft is missing and the
wheel-head, with a Greek cross in relief on both sides, is set into a large rounded granite base. A Grade II listed structure. Since the submissions by Malcolm Kewn SW4432 : Trengwainton Cross and Jim Champion SW4432 : Wayside cross, near Trengwainton Carn a lot of work has been carried out to clear the rhododendron growth and the cross is now much more visible - see SW4432 : Clearance work near Carn Lodge and SW4432 : Open ground. In the distance can be seen St Michael's Mount in Mount's Bay.
