Laid­back land­marks

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

THE mar­ket cross in my vil­lage of Ald­bourne, Wilt­shire, has, for gen­er­a­tions, been in­clined at about 45˚ (right) and its long axis is ori­en­tated north/south. It’s cast from one block of stone, so is de­lib­er­ately in­clined rather than just laid over for health-and-safety rea­sons. No sat­is­fac­tory ex­pla­na­tion has ever been of­fered for this and no other sim­i­lar cross has so far been iden­ti­fied. Do any read­ers know of an­other ex­am­ple or an ex­pla­na­tion? Alan Heas­man, Wilt­shire
