Mercat Cross is old, very old but not all of it is as old as other bits. Quite how all these bits and pieces ended up together I do not know but it is worth seeing and due to it's high profile location it could only be a virtual cache
Scheduled Ancient Monument No 2780. The shields bear the arms of the Burgh of Peebles, and the Frasers. The shaft is reputed to date from before 1320; the sundial is dated 1699 and the weathervane 1662. The cross originally stood in the old Market Place and was dismantled in 1807, the shaft and head being preserved in the grounds of Kingsmeadows house; it was resited in the court of the Chambers Institution in 1857, and moved in 1895 to the High Street as a gift of Col William Thorburn of Craigerne. It was moved again in 1965 by Schomberg Scott to allow for traffic.
To claim this cache as a find simply attach a picture of you in front of the cross. You do not have to be close to the cross but the picture must show your face and the cross.
