This weeks Sunday Photo is 13th-century Preaching Cross on the village green in Woodeaton, in the background is the Holy Rood church which is featured this week in my other blog My Grave Place.

Have a great Sunday

  1. One of the many things I love about blogging is that it sends you on little journeys, like me not knowing what a preaching cross was and going to Google to find out about it. If I ever saw one of these before I was 25 years old (the age I left England) I don't remember it. It's only with age that I have loved learning about these things, and so Bill I want to thank you for sending me on my journey. I thoroughly enjoyed this post and the one of the church. I have this love of learning now and it is why I enjoy visiting blogs such as yours. Better late than never i suppose, the journeying :)

    1. Let you into a secrete, I never knew either till a few years ago. A village near me has three of them in various states. Might do a blog on them for a change

  6. Hello, Bill

    I must confess to having to look up the meaning of "preaching cross". Thank you introducing me to something "new" from the 13th century, as well as sharing it at Sunlit Sunday. The setting is one I would enjoy visiting and can imagine lingering there for awhile. I must pop over the ocean again . . .

  15. A very interesting photo of this 'preaching cross' and I will have to look it up too, as I've never heard of one before. Very unique. I'm off to do that and to see your other blogpost. Have a good week.
