Village crosses

The Crosbys, Little and Great, have a name coming from the Old Norse for village with crosses. It is thought that St. Mary's church in Little Crosby stands on the site of a Viking chapel called the Harkirk. In 1611, William Blundell, the local lord, established a burial ground here for Roman Catholic recusants denied burial at Sefton Church in the aftermath of the Reformation and
unearthed a substantial hoard of Viking coins.
