Kettlestang Cross
Kettlestang Cross
Or more accurately, the remains of Kettlestang Cross. This once marked the line of a "road" known as Potter Lane, that ran over Kettlestang Hill, by Sigsworth to the Nidd opposite Heathfield Grange. It was used by the monks & lay-brothers of Byland Abbey to access their land on the west side of Nidderdale, across land owned by Fountains Abbey. An agreement was drafted in the 12thC.
The previous description of the cross by the Milestone Society, which states that "it is just off a track" is not to be believed. It is in a pathless moorland, where even sheep fear to tread.
