Wayside Cross in Shillito Wood, Derbyshire
Wayside Cross in Shillito Wood, Derbyshire
This weathered stone cross is situated in a small patch of woodland on the moors of eastern Derbyshire, Great Britain. The cross is now protected by Historic England as a scheduled monument (no.1008612). It is thought to be an example of a medieval wayside cross, which would have served as a waymarker for travellers on the old route across the moors.
