Knotty Cross

From The Ancient Crosses of Lancashire by Henry Taylor:

These words occur on the six-inch ordnance map at the intersection of roads one-third of a mile south-east from the centre of Gateacre village and about half a mile in a north-easterly direction from Much Woolton Church.

If you went to the site today you would be on the end of Lingford Close in Netherley, which is just within the boundary of Little Woolton. I’ve reproduced the old map below (click for a larger version):
