Holy Island village cross

  • Description

    "An inscription at the base says "This cross rebuilt by H.C.Selby Esq 1828". Selby was a prosperous landowner who made several improvements on Holy Island, including tidying up the Priory ruins (information from the Public Monument and Sculpture Association http://pmsa.cch.kcl.ac.uk/pmsa-database/9892/ ). The cross was designed by John Dobson of Newcastle. It replaced a 16th century market cross on the site." Photo by Rose and Trev Clough, 2011.
