SJ9852 : Butter Cross

taken 7 years ago, near to Basford Green, Staffordshire, Great Britain

Butter Cross
Butter Cross
This cross was originally erected by the Challinor family, who owned the land in the middle ages. It would have been a trading site for farm produce, presumably including butter. It also marks a crossroads which must have been important at the time. One of the two paths that cross here is an old hollow way. The base of the cross bears the inscription "THIS ANCIENT CROSS WAS RESTORED IN 1990 WILLIAM R. CHALLINOR"
