Bede Memorial Cross

  • Description

    "Grade II listed monument built in 1904 by GW Millburn and CC Hodges, and dedicated to Venerable Bede and Eadfrith of Lindisfarne. The memorial includes extracts from Bede’s writing. The cross was removed in 1914, in the First World War, and returned to this site in 1921. Removed again during the Second World War. The seating to the left of picture is on the base of one of a pair of guns of the coastal gun battery installed on the cliff top. The battery was re-used during WW2." Photo by John M, 2018.
