Gateway To Cornwall

Gateway to CornwallThe Cornish Celtic Cross is to be official opened by TV Personalities Richard and Judy who will be the guests of honour at the official opening of the Cornish Cross on Friday 10th May.   The celebrity couple will make a short speech and unveil a memorial plaque at the Saltash landmark.

The cross was designed by Sculptor, Simon Thomas and stands at an impressive 62ft, and consists of copper, with a head containing samples of other metals mined in Cornwall to reflect the county’s mining history.  After years of planning, the 20m Celtic cross, which cost £656,000 to complete, was installed on April 20 2013.   The project, which is part of the wider Elwell Woods regeneration programme, was organised by the Saltash Waterfront Residents’ Association.
