The Millennium Cross on Dirrington Little Law
The Millennium Cross on Dirrington Little Law
This Millennium Cross is perched on a prominent position on Dirrington Little Law (363m) 6 miles west of Duns on the southern edge of the Lammermuir Hills. Organised by local churches and constructed by local craftsmen, the 5m high cross was airlifted into position by an army helicopter. 250 people, including a brass ensemble, gathered at the summit on a cold damp afternoon on Sunday 11th June 2000 for the official ecumenical dedication service, with representatives of 9 different churches taking part. On a previous visit to the hill, there was a visitorís book within a small metal box, but there is no trace of this now. A small metal plaque near the base of the cross reads:-
