Here we have Alston Market Cross. Alston the highest market town in England at 300m. The market cross here dates from 1774 but has been rebuilt a few times after being hit by wagons.
We came for a very enjoyable orienteering event which led us round the streets and alleys and parks. A good opportunity to explore the lovely old town and the heritage South Tynedale Railway at Alston station. The latter has a good café if you are visiting
