Long Description:
The calvary at the crossroads at Le Gheer, sited exactly where it was a hundred years ago. There’s a photograph of it taken in 1915 in the late Tony Spagnoly’s excellent book ’A Walk Round Plugstreet’, and you will find another one if you enlarge the photo of the nearby CWGC information board (scroll down a bit). I can’t tell for certain whether the present figure of Christ is the same as the original, though it may well be, and it may also be that the wooden cross is original; it certainly suffered damage during the war, and its unusual proportions suggest that the arms of the cross may have been shortened as a consequence.
Year photo was taken: 1915
