Silent Sunday……. but not off to church this week.



Rosedale Moor, North Yorkshire

High on the North Yorkshire Moors you can find a great many ancient stone crosses, many going back over countless centuries. But this cross is much more modern.  It is  the War Memorial for the small village and surrounds of Rosedale Abbey that nestles in the valley below.  A memorial that in my view has been erected with past history very much in mind….and a place for contemplation.
