STYDD 02A - The cross of the Order of Knights Hospitallers
St Saviour's Church of the Knights Hospitallers at Stydd near Ribchester in the Ribble Valley of Lancashire.
Snowdrops planted in an eight-pointed cross as the symbol of the Order of the Knights Hospitaller.
This tiny ancient church is believed to date from around 1100 and was acquired by the Knights Hospitallers in the late 13th century. The Knights Hospitallers treated knights returning from the crusades.
The church was restored in 2007, when the walls were reinforced with steel rods to protect them from the weight of the slate roof.
Grade 1 listed.
