HEADLESS CROSS

DESCRIPTION + /

A late 10th-11th century cross shaft on a modern base, surmounted by a post-medieval guidepost and stone sundial. The cross shaft was reputedly found during construction of a reservoir and re-erected near to its original position, and may have been a wayside cross. The upper part of the cross is in Harris Museum and Art Gallery, Preston, since 1980. On one side is a figure with kirtle holding a cross against his chest. The other faces are heavily decorated with symmetrical designs.
