Smallest National Trust property?

Sharow Cross, near Ripon, must surely qualify as one of the smallest properties owned by the National Trust. A Grade II* listed building, it is the remains and sole survivor of one of eight crosses erected a mile from St. Wilfred's monastery (later Ripon Cathedral) to indicate the limit of sanctuary which was granted in 926.

I think Alan is right. I think the cross is more of an asset than a property, although it could probably have one of those pole sitting monks (stylite?) on it. ;-)
Still interesting though. I was not aware sanctuary was extended beyond the walls of religious buildings.

Yes I agree Poo . I think the smallest property (national trust) with a roof maybe Hawkers hut built on the Dorset coast by the reverend Hawker from coastal driftwood. Reply
