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.
