Peak Church cross

Peak Church cross

This is currently in St. Stephen's Chapel, Stanley, but it originally came from the Peak Church, and was used by the internees in Stanley Internment Camp. An inscription on the back explains its history:

This cross was recovered from the ruins of the old Peak Church in 1941 and sent in to Stanley Internment Camp where it was used at the United Services of Worship in the College Hall and afterwards in the Cathedral upon the liberation of the colony.

Presented to St Stephen's College Stanley, Michaelmas Day in the year of our lord, 1958.
