The 'Spiral Stone', Crowtrees lane, Rastrick
The 'Spiral Stone', Crowtrees lane, Rastrick
Grade II listed, and considered to be contemporary to the cross base in the churchyard. The spiral is said to be reminiscent of a Bishop's crozier and therefore possibly marking an ecclesiastical boundary. However why should such a boundary be in the middle of a township, and why is it in Crowtrees Lane, which was not the medieval main road? For imagesofengland photo and text see LinkExternal link
