"A Cross Between" - Ana Cross - North York Moors
Ainhowe or Ana Cross is situated about ½ a mile east of Rosedale Chimney Bank on wild Spaunton Moor and has been a prominent landmark for hundreds of years. The original cross can be seen in the crypt of Lastingham Church, about 2 miles south of the present structure which stands at an impressive height of over 10 ft. This makes it the tallest cross on the moors but at one time it stood even higher, almost 30 ft high!
