Covenanters in Fenwick Churchyard
Fenwick was a stronghold of the Covenanters who fought in Scotland's religious struggles of the late 17th century. The churchyard contains a number of graves and memorials, all marked with the green plaques shown in this shot. The inscriptions bear witness to the harshness of the treatment meted out by the government forces.
