Trevilley Cross

Throughout the Spring and Summer I have been searching out Cornish Crosses in the Landscape.  The far west of Cornwall is particularly rich in them and most are medieval.  They are usually to be found where paths or lanes intersect.  Some of these are now well frequented roads, others like the Trevilley Cross are nestled in corners of fields.  The farmer at Trevilley has a passion for roses and planted this white Rugosa rose that now surrounds the cross.  I find the combination of ephemeral, papery flowers, with weathered granite, particularly appealing.
