Last year when visiting the Yorkshire Moors on the road between Egton Bridge and Goathland I noticed a cross by the side of the road but for some reason passed by so this year when I came across it again I decided to walk up the moor to take a better look. Not only is there a cross with an interesting history but a seat from which to enjoy the view. The cross is enigmatically inscribed KF 1929 - KF was Mr J Kenneth Foster, J.P. of Egton Manor, who arranged for the cross to be erected in April 1929. The cross was designed by Sir E.L.Lutyens A.R.A. and is a copy of an ancient wayside cross on a hill near Vittel, Vosges, France. It was built of stone from the Egton estate. Although the cross was not erected not as a memorial it is close to the place an aircraft crashed on 15th April 1917.

Lovely shot, Brian, though it looks just a little oversharpened.

Thanks all for taking a look and for the comments, appreciated as always.

Jim - looking at it again you could be right, I have a tendency to push sharpness to the limit, seems I may have slightly overstepped the mark this time.

Thanks all for taking a look and for the comments, appreciated as always. I know it's not much more than a postcard shot but after parking where parking was not really convenient and walking up the moor to take a better look I thought I would give the image an airing.

Interesting background notes to your landscape Brian. Looks like a nice place to stop and admire the scenery, excellent colour and detail.

Thanks for the viewing and comment, Louise, appreciated. The picture of the seat is a little deceptive, it's no longer in condition to be used.
