RUNIC CROSS at All Saints churchyard in Bakewell

Bakewell Runic Cross Bakewell Runic Cross

This ornate Runic Cross is one of two ninth century Saxon crosses in All Saints churchyard at Bakewell and stands in an enclosure near the south transept - the second one is known as Beeley cross.

It is almost complete and the largest of the two. The carving includes scroll work, an animal which appears to have something between its paws and horse and rider.
