Easter Morning at the Chevin Cross

A crowd of worshippers gathered at this wooden cross this morning for a 7 AM service. The cross is erected each year at Easter on Otley Chevin, a viewpoint which overlooks the Wharfe valley. The cross stands 32 ft high and is around 16 ft wide and is made from timber salvaged from the IRA bombing of Manchester on 15th June 1996, there were no fatalities but 212 people were injured, some of them seriously.
