Market Cross

The Market Cross in Kirkby Lonsdale was built in 1905. The octagonal stone structure was built in a Tudor-Gothic syle. It was presented to the town by the Rev. J.W. Davies, who was Vicar of Kirkby Lonsdale from 1889 to 1908.[1] The Market Cross is Grade II listed on the National Heritage List for England.
