History

According to Roger of Wendover, it was where Eric Bloodaxe (d. 954), recently expelled from York, was betrayed and killed, an event which some historians believe to have taken place in a great battle. Ancient monuments include a Roman marching camp at Rey Cross (54°30′25″N 2°09′19″W / 54.5070°N 2.1552°W / 54.5070; -2.1552 (Rey Cross marching camp)), and the Rey Cross itself (54°30′21″N 2°08′55″W / 54.50579°N 2.14867°W / 54.50579; -2.14867 (Rey Cross)), also called Rere Cross (Scheduled monument, no. 32713).
