NR4550 : "The Thief's Cross"

taken 14 years ago, near to Kintour, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

"The Thief's Cross"
"The Thief's Cross"
Outside the wall of the Kildalton churchyard stands a simple late-medieval cross possibly erected by some dignitary (while still alive) as a place for private prayer and for his own salvation. However, because this cross stands in non-consecrated ground, the story has evolved that it is the grave of a criminal and it has been nicknamed “The Thief’s Cross”. The churchyard and magnificent Kildalton High Cross is located directly behind the photographer.
