Old paths lost at Stony Cross

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The old wayside cross at Stony Cross, off the A171 near Wombleton, had long interested me, so we decided to folloow the lines of the converging paths. 

However, we discovered that several of the rights of way shown on the OS map had been diverted in 2007. Unfortunately, in two cases these seem to have been paths following the old lines of the routes from the wayside cross.

In the 7th Century, a cross near Wombleton was the assembly point for local government meetings in the Anglian kingdom of Deira (History Of Ryedale), where new laws were announced, and news was circulated.  It is tempting to speculate that Stony Cross was the location, particularly as it is located at a meeting of ways.

Left is th 1856 map, on which the northwest and northeast path are both shown, crossing enclosure boundaries.

Excellent day out with Phil and Bob, taking a first look at Raisdale.  We were almost blown off the ascent to Cold Moor and had to retreat.  My map was blown away, and I had to rely on my GPS route.
