    There is also a Saxon "preaching cross" at Bromborough.
    Thanks, Philip. That would be wonderful if you could get photos of those crosses "across the water."

    Hi Tony

    Is it a cross or a mileage marker? The lettering at the top might indicate the latter, though of course they might have adapted an old cross. The hatching on the shaft of the cross tells me though that the monument is possibly not medieval, maybe eighteenth century also going by the style of lettering.
