White Cross

Geotag Icon Show on map

The cross is at the junction of Commondale road with the road from Castleton to Lockwood Beck, although looking around the landscape you can see this has been a major junction long before tarmac roads.

The base of the cross is medieval, the shaft is an 18th century dressed stone replacing the original cross now in the Whitby Museum.

I was happy to see some coins on the top, which is something my grandfather always encouraged me to do as a child.
