We walked across the field - luckily it wasn't raining! The wood was fenced off but there were gaps in the fence. It was these gaps that gave us a clue. The monument used to be a local place for gangs of youngsters to meet.
This was my first glimpse of the Gaveston Cross. I can't tell you the excitement I felt.
The monument is very tall, so the cross on the top is undamaged.
