Stone Cross in Leiasund is Kvitsøy most famous past memory. It has a height above ground of 3.9 meters.
The Cross is easily visible from the fairway, and has therefore always been a familiar sea and sailing brand. No one knows for sure when the cross was set up, but it must be at least 1000 years old. It is purified by salt water and wind. English missionaries may already have erected the cross in the 900′s. Since then it´s been a landmark for sailors, from the Viking Age to the present. Snorre Sturlason tells that Erling Skjalgsson and Olav Haraldsson had a settlement at this cross in 1016.
But now it´s just for me to pose at. Strike a pose!
