About the Image

Ralph's Cross, Westerdale Moor, North Yorkshire.
Located on Danby High Moor between Hutton-le-Hole and Castleton, it was first described in deeds from the early 13th century. The present-day cross could date from the 18th century though some historians date it to around 1200. It seems likely that a much older cross once stood on this site — perhaps an Anglo-Saxon one that was actually made of wood. At that time it may have been referred to as ‘The Roda Cross’ (Rude Cross). More than likely it acted as a medieval highway marker because it stands at the junction of two moorland roads (to Rosedale and Westerdale).
