These Saxon Era crosses are located in Sandbach
about midway between Birmingham and Liverpool just off the M6. (For us Americans, the M stands for motorway.) They are rare representatives from a time that is not well documented dating back to the 9th century and were possibly associated with the land of Mercia
. (Fans of the show Vikings
may recognize this kingdom name.) The very top of the crosses are missing, but the detailed Celtic and Christian images are well preserved.
