St Wilfrid's Church, Egginton (Wicker Cross)

Recent Photograph of St Wilfrid's Church (Wicker Cross) (Egginton)

The cross is displayed in the window of the aisle to the left (north) of the nave. Egginton lying in the flood plain of the River Dove, made it an ideal environment for the growing of willow and osier beds. This, aside from farming, provided work for the making of wicker baskets and besoms from around the 17th century.

Note the hatchment for the EVERY family on the left wall.
