Sculpture in School Square, Longhoughton
Sculpture in School Square, Longhoughton
This stone carving in red Doddington sandstone was made to remind people of the history of the village and its roots in the Celtic traditions of spirituality and the love of nature. It is on the site of an ancient cross on the pilgrimage route between Holy island and Durham.

The sculpture by Gilbert Ward of Fourstones, Hexham, suggests a Celtic cross whose shaft is broken, leading the eye forever upwards.

The stone was erected in 2004 by Longhoughton Parish Council and the words above are from a plaque placed at the foot of the sculpture.

The work was sponsored by the Northumberland Coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the Arts council England, North East.
