If there were to be a special prize for wasting public money, this edifice would win hands down. It doesn't do anything, it isn't real and falls squarely into the plastic flowers category for absolute naff. Cornwall is awash with real granite crosses so how...More

Supposed to be a landmark but someone forgot to put it somewhere anyone would notice it. The structure is OK and in a nice setting for a picnic but is it a landmark? It's all about location as they say.

As we live in Saltash we thought it was about time we took a good look at the cross. First thing to say is that we walked to it from home and kind of blundered into the entrance. Although it stands loud and proud the...More
