Roman Cross at Affetside
Roman Cross at Affetside
A listed grade II structure, believed by many to be of Roman origin (possibly because of its proximity to the Roman road), supposedly marking the mid point between London and Edinburgh. English Heritage, however suggest that its origins may be much later, perhaps 17th or 18th century. LinkExternal link

There is an interesting account of the history of Affetside cross on the wikipedia page LinkExternal link
