St Ives crosses

St Ives 10There are two crosses tucked into a corner of the churchyard of St Ives church. Sadly, the larger – described as a ‘lantern cross’ which seems generous when compared with that at St Mawgan in Pydar – is positioned in such a way that it is hard to admire or photograph from a distance.

St Ives 09The smaller may simply be a head stone but looks ancient.
