Swinton Village Cross
Swinton Village Cross
Situated in the village green, this 1769 classical sundialed column is known as the 12th Man of Swinton. (Source: Borders and Berwick, an Architectural Guide by Charles Alexander Strang).
The large building behind on the right is the former Free Church built in 1860, but is now used as the village hall. This had a very striking tall spire which could be seen from all around the Eastern Borders, but the top of the spire had to be removed for safety reasons. (Source: Swinton Kirk information leaflet). At the time of visiting there was a notice on the hall door stating that the building was not available for public use until further notice.
