Tyne and Wear HER(718): Leam Lane, Jingling Gate, cross - Details
Leam Lane, Jingling Gate, cross
Religious Ritual and Funerary
In addition to HER no. 717, Hodgson, the early nineteenth century antiquarian, noted "another pediment of a cross" in the centre of Leam Lane between White Mare (sic) Pool and Jingling Gate. The latter was at the junction of Lingey Lane and Leam Lane (NZ 2998 6066). As Leam Lane, the Wrekendyke, was an important and early parish and township boundary, this and HER no. 717 were obviously boundary crosses.
