Cross at Rawlsbury Camp, Bulbarrow Hill
Cross at Rawlsbury Camp, Bulbarrow Hill
A controversial object?:
"A large, fairly new wooden cross has been placed within the hillfort. I can see no mention of this in the listing [of this Ancient Monument site] and wonder if it is a modern construction or replacing an older, historic one. I would hope the latter, as I cannot see how such despoilation [sic] of a scheduled ancient monument would be allowed otherwise." LinkExternal link
Is this replacing an earlier cross on the site of an Armada beacon?
