This fantastic piece of history is over 800 years old. How it survived is amazing. It hasn't changed at all in all the old pics that are produced of it. Mind boggling!

This must be one of the best preserved of the 3 remaining Eleanor Crosses and there is an interesting church there as well.

It isn't a theme park, there is no entry fee, it's open and available all year - whatever the weather, in the summer it's somewhere to gather to drink a beer from The Star, it's a symbol of love and of strength. It's certainly worth...More
