Peel Castle Cross Slab

Period: Early Medieval

NGR Easting: 224210

NGR Northing: 484530

Description: This slab was found in the west wall of the north transept of St German's Cathedral. The stone is broken, and the carving of a cross in outline with triangular arms - a 'cross pattee' - is incomplete, having lost the ends of all the limbs save for the head. A further line incised above the head of the cross suggests that when originally complete, the cross was surrounded by a rectangular panel. The form of the cross is very similar to Manx Cross 30, which was found nearby.
