SO2722 : St Issui's Church & Cross, Partrishow

taken 14 years ago, near to Partrishow, Powys, Great Britain

St Issui's Church & Cross, Partrishow.
St Issui's Church & Cross, Partrishow.
The church and cross stand on the South Eastern slopes of the Gader Range, above St Issui's Holy Well.
In 1188 Giraldus Cambrensis and Archbishop Baldwin no doubt stood alongside the cross when they came to preach the Third Crusade to the parishioners, who would have been sat on the stone seats running along side the church walls.
The cross is in particularly good condition, due to the fact the church could not be found when the order for the destruction of all church crosses was given in 1547.
