Cobden Cross Appeal

Charity description

Cobden Cross Appeal logo
Thank you for looking at our project to replace the damaged Cross on Cobden Edge overlooking Marple with a new much stronger structure. This wooden cross was originally erected in March 1970 by the local Churches Together and has since become a much loved, well visited landmark.
An appeal for £25,000 has been launched to do this work.


After loosing the top in winter storms, the remaining T structure is also now showing signs of  decay,  and it would not be wise to repair it.  As the local Churches Together have been responsible for the cross since it was erected,  they have agreed to take down what remains of the existing cross and replace it with a stronger structure of galvanised steel clad with wood to retain the original appearance. Because the site is difficult to access a professional building and engineering contractor will undertake the work.
The churches are already holding events to raise funds.  Many people, churchgoers or not, also value the cross overlooking our community and have been asking when it will be restored from its present T-shape to become once again the familiar cross.  We are therefore also appealing for the support from the wider community in helping the target to be reached.
Please donate to support our cause.
