Local Crosses & Way-Markers

This Foldout collects the entries for some of the Crosses, Market crosses, and Way-Markers which are – or were – to be found in the district

These may have been preaching sites – such as market crosses, where people of a community gathered to pray before churches were built – or way-markers for travellers across the moors
