Ancient cross beside the road at Blisland
Ancient cross beside the road at Blisland
This cross is situated at the staggered junction of four roads at the western end of the village green in Blisland village on the western fringes of Bodmin Moor. It has always been recorded at this location since its first depiction by the Ordnance Survey in 1881. This junction marks the crossing point of routes linking the towns and settlements of the north west coastal strip of Cornwall and western Bodmin Moor with one of the main early east-west routes across Cornwall, now the A30, and its early link with the crossing point of the River Camel at Wadebridge. On a local level, this cross is one of an unusually large number of medieval wayside crosses within this parish which marked the main routes to the church, situated 175m south east of this monument.
