The  "Pilgrim's Cross" Holcombe
The "Pilgrim's Cross" Holcombe
A wayside cross stood on this site from at least 1176 marking the route from Manchester to Whalley Abbey. In 1901 only the base remained and that was broken up by unknown hands. The vicar of Holombe, Rev. H. Dowsett was instrumental in starting a public collection which resulted in the memorial stone being erected in 1902. Another cross on the same route was at Holden, Haslingden SD7822 : The base of the ancient Holden Cross
