Siss Cross
Siss Cross
Typical of the many crosses that are a feature of the North York Moors. Originally erected by the Saxons or Danes after their conversion to Christianity but most replaced over the years. Their purpose has been speculated as a waymarker, territorial boundary or a memorial but may have been re-used for all of these. Siss Cross is on Danby Low Moor close to the ancient trod running north from Danby to the coast.
