New Cross on Cobden Edge

Sunday, 19 August, 2018

A cross has stood on Cobden Edge since 1970 when it was erected by members of Marple Churches Together and it has been a well-known local landmark since then, until damaged in the storms of December 2015.

Cobden Cross Appeal

By Helen Rogers on Tuesday, 10 April, 2018

Churches Together Marple are hard at work fund-raising to reach the £25,000 needed to replace the storm-damaged cross on Cobden Edge above Mellor and Marple. The current T-shaped structure will be replaced with a new, stronger cross built to much better withstand the exposed conditions at the Cobden Edge location. Over £10,000 has been raised so far, from fund-raising events and donations by individuals and groups.
