Stone Cross

St. Michael's Church, Bosherston, Pembrokeshire

Outside the church, erected on a two-tier throne, there is an unusual Preaching Cross - unusual in that it has an unnaturally short upright and that it has a face carved on the centre of the cross. It has been suggested that originally there was a full stone crucifix which was mutilated and partly destroyed, perhaps during the Reformation, and that local folk found the cross but being unable to find its stem placed the cross on a simple upright of locally-hewn stone and erected it to serve as a Preaching Cross.

So nicely ringed with early spring daffodils. Interesting how this came about, and a very fine shot indeed. V
