The Ruthwell Cross
The Ruthwell Cross
The Ruthwell Cross was carved by skilled Northumbrian sculptors in the early 8th century. It is the most important Anglo-Saxon cross in Scotland and a monument of international importance.
The cross originally stood near the present church. In 1664 it was pulled down and smashed on the instructions of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland. In 1802 it was re-erected in the manse garden and in 1887 was moved to a specially built apse in the church.
