Sketch we think done By G Dolby Would love to know more about this.
Got its name from the old stone monument that does not look much like a cross and still stands today.
All the buildings in this picture still stand today. The butchers shop on the right was later Fred's cafe & now an indian take away. The only thing that's gone is the old pump
The Anchor Inn still open to this day with the same name. Note the roads little more than sludge tracks
Several years later the old village pump & some buildings demolished.
Another view of the cross. To the left a shop that was a chemist for about a hundred years.
Looking up Church Lane some years ago on the left side you can see a horse and cart.
Church Lane looking towards the cross from outside the Coach & Horses pub.You can just see a bit of the esso sign on what is now the cross garage.Dont know who the baby is but it would not be a good place to leave one these days
Close to the picture above it but a much older view before the miners welfare was built.
