Thanks John for the Withgill cross info, I had a look at the map last night and marked (red flag) another 9 after yesterdays post
I printed this out and enlarged around the flags to print on the back
then laminated and set off this morning, I managed all of them and spotted another 2 on the way round, here's the GPS Mark map
and I'll give the Map ref as I detail each one -------------------------
So starting at the Church in Whalley Mark 001 SD 73247 36157
then onto Wiswell Mark 002 SD 74339 37276
then onto Mark 003 and either the maps out or I found another, as the GPS Mark is futher along the path by the fork ?
then onto the Church at Great Mitton (no GPS Mark) but SD 71542 38963
and a Sundial
It was then on to look for Withgill Cross

With a bit of head scratching and map in hand I talked to a friendly Gentleman driving out of the drive to Withgill who having lived there 9 years had not heard of it, he got out looked at the map crossed the road looked in the field then there were two of us head scratching, after he left Teddy called in the slash and burn rainforest team and we made our way into the copse
it is there honest !
but this is how I left it quietly hiding,and for reference it's just over the hedge opposite the wooden electricity pole
I passed this at Mark 005 SD 68823 40546 and thought it worth a photo ?
I then drove down into Hurst Green to photo the Cross in the square Mark 006 SD 68511 37928
then just out of the village to Mark 007 SD 69548 37849
I then passed this at the side of the road at Mark 008 SD68193 39815
then onto Mark 009 SD 68642 40444
The next and final one, was the hardest to find including no where to park and no access but I got over the wall by the water culvert
and thrashed through some deep wet braken
I was begining to mutter ! when I spotted it, or divined it as it was still a long way off,
just about dead centre here at the top of the hill
1/2 way up and looking back, and I was soaked ! Umbrellas don't work in wet braken !
So finaly at Mark 010 SD 67160 39865
The Bear opened the Bistro a Lavazza drip Coffee and a glass of Chilian Shiraz
The Bear says this post must be worth a TNA Gold-foiled Chocolate Medal ?
cheers all Danny
