Full Description

SK 0910 8232: Swyer or Rushope Cross (site of). Swyer Cross is referred to in a deed of 1657 relating to a sale of part of a neighbourship at Rushop. There is a close called Swyer Green on the opposite side of the Castleton Road to the Poors Piece, and the late Mr Greaves Bagshawe thought that the cross stood hereabouts close to the meeting of several ancient highways. Possibly that marked 'Rushope Cross'. (1, 2) The site falls in an arable field. No remains of a cross were noted [1965]. (3)
