Faith in the City - Chevin Cross

Today's offering is the Cross at Otley

Otley Council of Christian Churches installed the first Chevin Cross in 1969. The current cross was made of timber salvaged from Manchester’s Arndale Centre after the IRA bombing and first used in 2000.

The monument is 32 feet by 16 feet and requires at least 40 volunteers to raise it each year.

The printed fabric was hand stitched in long and short by Olive Hudson and Gwen Woolliscroft in a total of 45 hours.
