Saxon cross, St Mary's Church, Easington
Saxon cross, St Mary's Church, Easington
Located at the base of the west wall of the tower, the oldest part of the church built in C12, is a Saxon cross dating from C10 or C11 carved in a slab of Magnesian Limestone. It is probably from a gravestone or dedication cross. Its presence here suggests that the current church was built on the site of a much earlier Anglo-Saxon church.
