Fore Wayside Crosses

Approximately 18 crosses were situated along the pilgrim trail within a 10 kilometre radius of Fore. Collectively known as the Fore wayside crosses, some are plain and others bear decoration. They are spread out along a pilgrimage route around Fore Abbey. Pictured left is a small cross with crucifixion which is situated in the centre of Fore. A number of the crosses have been badly neglected and others are missing. During the 18th and 19th centuries funeral processions would follow the line of these crosses halting at each one in turn for special prayers
