Ilam Cross

Standing in the middle of the village of Ilam in the Peak District National Park in Staffordshire is this striking and beautiful Victorian monument in the style of an Eleanor Cross. Behind the cross you can see the extremely picturesque cottages with their very neatly kept and colourful front gardens. You can see here how the top of the cross has been completely replaced with modern sandstone after a storm caused it to crumble away in the 1960s.
