Boundary Cross (Hexham)

This is may be the site of a cross which marked the boundary of Hexham Abbey. It was thought that the stone cross base had been found in the late 19th century, but it was, in fact, a creeing trough. However, the site name, Maiden Cross, suggests that this was the site of a cross.
