Butter Cross, Swinton

This Butter Cross would have provided a meeting place and a location to trade goods. The actual cross was probably destroyed in the 16th or 17th centuries and all that survives is a plinth and a base. It was removed from its original location of Chapel Hill to the Church and finally back to Chapel Hill again in 2004 when a new cross was added in an attempt to recreate how it perhaps had originally looked.
