Cross over Mossley



This week's Sky Watch features the big cross on the hill overlooking Mossley. It doesn't look very big in the picture, but it is when you get up close to it! Mossley is the town on the left, below the hill. Ashton is out of shot to the right, a little further away.

The cross was erected in 1994 by Mossley Churches Together, and it can be seen on the skyline from many parts of the town.

It is not to be confused with Mossley Cross, which is where the Turnpike road crossed the ancient hilltop highway, and is in the dip behind the white buildings, just to the right of the cross.

See the Ordnance Survey map of this location. (The cross is just above the "r" in "Brook Bottom".)

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!


Note: Sorry to anybody who tried to access this blog in the last few days and found that they were being re-directed to another site. This was not anything to do with me. One of the third-party widgets on the left had been hacked. It has now been removed.
If anyone else is having the same problem with their blog, it was the "Recent Comments" widget. You need to disable javascript before going to to your blog in order to remove the widget from your template. (Disabling javascript stops you being re-directed.) When you are on the template section you will need to enable javascript again in order to save your changes.

  3. Got that widget on one of my blogs and don't seem to be having any problems with it. Maybe it was bad comment that had showed up therein rather than the widget itself. BTW in case you haven't heard - the CDPB portal is still down - Eric Tenin is getting new hosting for it but it may be down for some time - meanwhile several people are corresponding via the City Daily Photo Facebook page.
