Remains of the Buttercross, Scarborough
Remains of the Buttercross, Scarborough
The earliest known reference to the Buttercross in Scarborough is in 1395. Its exact date of origin is not known but it is believed to have formed part of the entrance to the old Borough in the 1200s. Doubts have been cast on its original position but it is clearly shown in the New and Exact Plan of Scarborough in 1725 in more or less its present position. In the days clearly it was a proper cross, but there is no record of the disappearance or dismantling of the stone cross-member.
