St Oswald - Cross shaft and base, Ravenstonedale

St Oswald

Here's another fine example of a cross shaft and its base in the church yard at Ravenstonedale. This cross shaft and its base are both Grade II listed, and, according English Heritage, may be pre-conquest, ie, may date from before 1066.

The shaft and base only lay about twenty five feet to the South of the church. The cross shaft is fitted with a brass sundial plate with a date of 1700 on it.
