Water Sheddles Cross

Water Sheddles Cross

This is a Lancashire/Yorkshire boundary stone on the moors between Laneshawbridge (Colne) and Howarth. On its face is carved "HANGING STONE OR WATERSHEDDLES CROSS" and the words may originate from a boundary dispute in the 17th century. This is the limit of Bradford District. It is mentioned in a perambulation of the 15th century. It is likely it was once a true cross but only the shaft remains. A small cross is carved on the top.
