If any where near these Crosses are well worth a visit, you have to walk through a field but worth it. It's a lovely graveyard but some of the older gravestones have been taken away it does rather spoil the overall feel.

The high crosses are amazing in many ways: their age, the workmanship and dedication to their formation, the symbolism decorating each one, and how they have stood the test of time and weathering.
