Legs Cross

  • Description

    "Another photo to add to the collection showing Legs Cross which stands at the side of Roman Dere Street. The cross is dated as 8th or 9th century and has been restored in recent years. It may well have been some form of Saxon boundary marker, whilst legend has it that James VI of Scotland rested here with his legs crossed on the way to claim the throne of England."
