NS8510 : Sheep fold, in the Mennock Pass

taken 4 years ago, 3 km from Auchengruith, Dumfries And Galloway, Great Britain

Sheep fold, in the Mennock Pass
Sheep fold, in the Mennock Pass
On a ridge between the Beer Burn and the main valley of the Mennock Water. The maps marks in old script a 'Cross' or 'Earthen Cross' depending on the scale. It is not very obvious, especially if one is expecting the usual stone cross, but Mary and Angus Hogg did some detective work and discovered it about 20m east of the sheepfold NS8510 : Mennock Earthen Cross. It does show up quite well on Google Earth imagery of 2010, with the help of a slight shadow from the morning sun.
