Damaged Saxon Cross, Bradbourne

Recent Photograph of Damaged Saxon Cross (Bradbourne)

“In the churchyard stands the lower portion of a fine and early cross, probably of the 8th century; the middle portion, split into two pieces, was long used as stile-posts; these display scriptural figures rudely carved, and interlaced foliage similar to that on the cross at Bakewell. In 1886, they were rescued from their ignoble position by A. Hartshorne esq. F.S.A. of Worthing, and placed in the church, together with an arm of the cross, which had been taken to Tissington Hall.”
