Commission: Commissioned to celebrate 2,000 years since the birth of Christ. Project initiated in April 2000. It was proposed to place a new cross on a site where there had been a earlier cross which disappeared in the 17th Century, possibly during, or in the period following, the English Civil War. The cost of project was 12,000. Funding came from WREN (Waste Recycling Environment), G.H.Middleton, Bryant Homes, Lefarge Aggregates (owners of Cadeby Quarry), Sprotbrough News, Sprotbrough Residents' Association and Sprotbrough & Cusworth Parish Council.
Erected in April 2003 and a ceremonial blessing performed by local ministers, Rev John Richards and Rev. Martin Ramsden, in June 2003.
