The Green at Swinton
The Green at Swinton
The village was planned around this rectangular green where the village cross (1769) stands. The prominent building on the left is the former Free Church (1860) now used as the village hall, but closed to the public at present. The name Swinton probably comes from 'Swine Town' from the days when there were lots of wild boars (pigs or swine) in the area. (Source: Swinton Kirk information leaflet).
