THE CATHOLIC CHURCH IN WYCH HOUSE LANE
The cross, which dates back to the 1860s, was placed in the porch at St Mary's as a reminder of the Church's early days in Middlewich.
An explanatory plaque tells of the origins of the cross:
"This cross stood above the High Altar of the old School - Chapel in Wych House Lane. It is placed here to remind you to pray for the souls of the pioneer priests and parishioners of Middlewich"
