SJ3454 : Old cross base, Chester Road, Gresford

Old cross base, Chester Road, Gresford
Old cross base, Chester Road, Gresford
This old cross base, according to the O.S., has stood at the junction of Clappers Lane with Chester Road for a very long time. It marks the turning for Gresford church from the main road between Wrexham and Chester. The schedule for the first Ordnance Survey records that a cut mark was made on an 'old font' at this junction. However, despite the large hole in the top of the stone (now used as a planter) it doesn't look much like a font. I have found no sign of the cut mark. See also SJ3454 : Junction of B5445 with B5373
