  • Description

    Description : The cross is the work of Thomas Chaucer erected in 1795. It stands on a base which probably predates the erection of the cross. The cross was for centuries the focal point of Hirings and Musters. It was from the cross that John Wesley preached on his first visit to Ryton in 1757 and Charles Wesley in 1742.Description and Views Collection : Local Studies Printed Copy : If you would like a printed copy of this image please contact Newcastle Libraries http://www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt" >www.newcastle.gov.uk/tlt quoting Accession Number : 031089
