SJ 68 NE LYMM C.P. THE CROSS


2/45 Lymm Cross

24/1/1950

GV I

Cross, largely early to mid C17, restored 1897. Sandstone on an
artificially stepped natural outcrop of red sandstone. Buff masonry.
The shaft of the Cross, on a square base of 5 steps with coved treads,
stands in a pavilion of red sandstone with square corner pillars which
have rudely moulded bases and bell capitals carrying a stone roof with
a pedimented gable to each face, and ball finials. The ridge-crossing
carries a tapered extension to the shaft of the cross (probably C17)
on which is a stone ball and an ornate weathervane. On the east,
south and west gables are bronze sundials of 1897 inscribed We are a
Shadow; Save Time; Think of the Last.
