On Spaunton Moor, to the north east of Hutton le Hole, Ana Cross is a ‘modern’ 19th century cross made of gritstone. The heather moorland around about is scattered with limestone boulders so gritstone must have been imported some distance. The cross replaced an earlier one, Ain Howe Cross, the top of which is now in the crypt at Lastingham church. It is thought that this was a sanctuary cross signifying the bounds within which the church’s sanctuary, providing immunity from arrest, could be claimed. This practice ended with the Reformation.
