Addingham Cross

The 'Addingham Cross' is a late 10th or early 11th century Saxon stone cross in the churchyard of St Michael's Church, Glassonby. The cross was originally located in the churchyard of the ancient church at Addingham, on the banks of the River Eden. However, the church and village of Addingham was flooded or washed away, when the River Eden changed its course in 1350 AD.[1] The Addingham Cross is a Scheduled Monument.
