About Wheston Cross*
The cross in this engraving is a standing cross, a free standing upright structure. They were usually constructed out of stone and were mostly erected during medieval times (mid 10th-16th century). They served a variety of functions, in churchyards as stations for outdoor processions, and elsewhere within settlements as places for preaching or penance. The Wheston Cross is very well preserved and is a beautiful example of a simple limestone cross with a decorated cross-head. It dates to the 14th or 15th century. (Source:
