8th Century Celtic Cross - Chart or Kit
One of a collection of beautiful counted cross stitch designs from the Celtic Rose Derbyshire Collection.
Eyam churchyard contains an Anglo-Saxon cross dated to the 7th or 8th centuries. Initially, it was located at the side of a cart track near Eyam. It is Grade I listed and a Scheduled Ancient Monument. It is believed that the cross originally lay on a moor outside the village and was later moved to the churchyard. It is covered in complex carvings and is almost complete, but is missing a section of the shaft. A replica of the Eyam Cross, but with the missing part intact, forms the War Memorial at Blundells School in Tiverton in Devon.
