Wayside cross, possibly medieval. Large rough dressed boulder has sunken square
hole into which is inserted monolithic cross shaft roughly dressed. Rectangular

part of the shaft lies prone at its foot. This has chamfers for arms of cross

Reservoir. Probably used as a waymarker on the road to Widdop hence to Colne
from Blackshaw Head.
