Maralyn Crellin introduces this edition of Shiaght Laa.

We join Sara Goodwins, author of the book 'Cross Purposes : An Introduction to Mediaeval Manx Crosses', as she illustrates the range of decorative styles with examples from the specially-constructed cross house in Kirk Maughold.

Moving southwards, we visit Port St Mary, where there is a joint initiative between Port St Mary Commissioners and Rushen Heritage Trust to add information to the name signs of the Port's byways. We find out more from Chair of the Commissioners, Michelle Haywood, and Trust member, Staffan Overgaard.
