Remains of Percy Cross
Remains of Percy Cross
This base is all that remains of a stone cross which would presumably have been set up in the time of Guisborough Priory.
It would serve to mark the route along Percy Rig - at one time a track far more used than it is today.
From LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) -
"The cross base lies at the side of the ancient pathway known as Ernaldsti. Both cross and path take their names from Ernaldus de Percy, onetime landowner of Kildale. The name Percy may be traced back to before 1078, William Percy having been granted large estates in Eskdale by William the Conqueror. Percy Cross is mentioned in 1624,standing on a Howe. The cross was moved in 1961 to allow excavations of the Howe, which yielded a stone cist with a few cremated bones. The original cross had been replaced by a rough stone boundary shaft inscribed R.C. T.C. 1856 (the initials of Robert Challoner of the Guisborough Estate, and Thomas his brother, who succeeded to the estate on Robert's death). Now only a plain socket remains. The ancient Ernaldsti is a northern continuation of the Rudland Rigg Track. "
