This crucifix was originally made for all the people who had served in WW1 from the parish of Probus. It was kept outside Probus Parish church where it was vandalised in the seventies. It was attacked with an axe. The current owners Roger Gluyas and Dennis Keam used old records to create a replica using English Elm and Oak.
