59e360384af58_MarketCross.jpg in Historic Bedlington 7 Posted September 23, 2020 · Edited September 23, 2020 by Canny lass · Report reply On 22/09/2020 at 13:53, Alan Edgar (Eggy1948) said: The Market Cross. Some call it The Nail. Said to have been moved to it's current site in 1782 but there is o entry in the Bedlington 'Timeline'. Info on the Megalithic Portal :- No entry in the 'Historical Timeline of Bedlington' on this site :- Info from @johndawsonjune1955 The Megalithic Portal doesn't make any sense to me. How can "Jim Swanns early 18th century diaries" possibly suggest that the cross was built in the late 18th century "1792". He must have written his diary BEFORE the cross was built!
