New Cross for Neath cemetery
19 September 2012
The Cross of Sacrifice at Neath (Llantwit) cemetery in South Wales has
been repaired, after it was badly damaged when vandals stole the
Commission staff had to hire a spider crane to lift a new top
section of the cross into place.
The spider was required because access to the site is so
restricted. The machine is small enough to get through a gate as
narrow as a couple of feet, but robust enough to allow heavy
weights to be hoisted.
The new section of the cross had to be treated to make them
match the existing weathered section.
The stolen broze sword has been replaced with a glass reinforced
plastic model -- to make it less attractive to thieves.
