Photograph of a headless Anglo-Saxon cross in St. Peter's Collegiate Church churchyard, Wolverhampton. The date is uncertain, possibly the 9th century and the material could be Grinshill stone. The shaft is 14' high, a size similar to the (Roman) forum columns at Viriconium, near Wroxeter, from where the column could possibly have been pillaged. It displays much ornamentation: Saxon animals, bird forms, scrolls, etc. The photograph was taken in mid 1960.
