    Wonder if the 'Thingwell' inscription is a mistake or if it's correct and 'Thingwall' isn't. Nice to see Broad Green split as it should be. The council on newer signs put Broadgreen. I recently moved from Oak Hill Park off Broad Green Road and they've even done it to that in calling it Oakhill Park.

    Priory Wood, St Michaels Road. This is an interesting Toxteth Park cross, as it looks to me to have carved deer on it.
    Feel free to guess what all the symbols mean...here are my wild guesses.

    Top of cross...a bird is encircled by 2 entwined serpents. To the left and right of the centre of the cross (which is worn so I can't make out what was on it), look like a pair of dogs? on each side. The bottom of the cross has the body and head of a person, with their arms across their chest.

    Shaft of cross...this has 6 squares of a design that I don't recognise (probably belongs to a family crest?), below this are some animals which I think include deer. At the very bottom of the cross shaft are some circles, which again I don't know.

    Default Woolton Cross

    Not sure of the history of this one. Sited at the junction of Speke Manor Rd and Woolton St.

    Very interesting, Marky. I have always been under the impression that everything in St. Michael's is a nineteenth century invention although this has the appearance of being a Saxon or Celtic cross. It is either cleverly done or, I should say, a transplant from somewhere else. Anybody else know anything about it?

    Thumbs up on your posting of the pics of the Woolton cross as well, Taffy. The inscriptions on the copper band are curious.

    It's Grade 2 listed and was erected in 1350.

    Damaged at a later date, it was restored in 1913 when Woolton was incorporated in to Liverpool.

    Re Priory Wood cross:
    I'd assumed it was from the Priory near to the 'cazzy' and incorporated into the wall around the time of the Garden Festival/development of Priory Wood.
