Sandbach CrossesSandbach is in the pastoral county of Cheshire, with the broad fertile meadows of the Cheshire Plain, country manor houses and the historic county town of Chester. It is bordered by Merseyside and Greater Manchester to the north, Derbyshire to the east, Staffordshire and Shropshire to the south, and Flintshire and Wrexham in Wales to the west. It is a county of rolling green countryside, half-timbered little towns and villages, and dairy farms producing the delicious, crumbly, white Cheshire cheese. Photo left: The Sandbach Crosses

Attractions The Sandbach Crosses are two heavily carved Saxon stone crosses located in the town of Sandbach. They are believed to date from the 9th century, to commemorate the advent of Christianity in the Kingdom of Mercia about 653 A.D. during the reign of the Saxon King Penda. They are decorated on all faces with carved figures, animals and vine scrolls. The taller cross shows biblical scenes and has a mutiliated head. The shorter cross has a truncated shaft with the mutilated head of another cross. Location: In the centre of Sandbach in the market place.
