Devised by Henrietta Vosper, from Cornwall, in 1998. Roselath is a farm near Lanlivery, St.Austell, Cornwall. The Old Farmhouse is Grade II listed, probably built mid 17th century but abandoned c1900 when a new house was built. In the Dark Ages, following the departure of the Romans in AD410, Cornwall was evangelised by missionaries from Ireland and Wales. A ‘preaching cross’ was originally erected to mark a monk’s cell or a spot where Christians would gather for services. Later they came to be used as way markers, particularly on the moors. They are found in nearly every churchyard and beside moorland roads though I found no reference to one actually called The Roselath Cross.
