|Gorgeous! Thanks Nicola - one of the strangest I've ever seen. Brilliant photo as ever!|
| I've been researching on the web, and came across some interesting info, which states that the cross is 10th centuary, which means it is Anglo/Scandinavian, therefore could be contempory with the hog back stones in the porch. |
