Tyne and Wear HER(717): Leam Lane, White Mere Pool, cross - Details
Leam Lane, White Mere Pool, cross
Religious Ritual and Funerary
The early nineteenth century antiquarian Hodgson describes, "...the pediment of the cross, which stands in the middle of Leam-lane, at Whitemere Pool,...". As Leam Lane, the Wrekendyke, was an important and early parish and township boundary, this and HER no. 718 were obviously boundary crosses.
