Original message (posted by rayonline5555)
serendipity.its ok by me that you like the monument and I totally agree that a lot of hard work has gone into the creation ofthe garden up to now. However,What you may not understand is that the original intention of the project was to recreate, and recognise,the birth and the heritage of the village right from the very beginning. In that respect the cross totally misrepresents the meaning of the original cross..It was a signpost...nothing more,nothing less...and it didn`t say `STUBSHAW CROSS` on it...It more than likely said `the two stubshaws`on it ...and it wasn`t written on a stone plinth at the base.It was on the cross arm like all ordinary signposts plain for all to see without getting down on your knees,,,,And one more thing this recreation is not just for your benefit or mine...It was for the benefit of our children,and our children`s children,and all future generations so that they will not have to ask the questions and get the wrong answers just because these people who created this garden today failed to seek out the truth and settled for much less. they have sold our heritage short and all I want to do is to correct their mistakes ....Am I wrong for that?
