|Description ||Ancient Cross at St Mary and Michael's Church, Great Urswick.|
The stone was found on the site by a turn-of-the-century vicar and was investigated on the site by the respected historian WG Collingwood, and may possibly describe a meeting between two important church leaders, and church rune stone holds the key to a 1600 year-old story that reveals the origins of Christianity in Britain.
|Beutiful photograph. Light coming through the window revealing the detail of the carvings and balanced by the flowers. Prizewinner!|
