Crailing Old Parish Churchyard
Crailing Old Parish Churchyard
This old churchyard, about 100m to the south of Crailing House, has been fenced off, thus preserving an impressive collection of 17th and 18th century symbolic stones. The area is usually under high vegetation but someone has cleared the site which is a big improvement and beneficial for viewing the gravestones. The ruined remains of the original church are on the right. Crailing Old Church was a chapel granted to Jedburgh Abbey in the early part of the 12th century. All that remains is a part of the north wall about 5m long and about 7m of the adjacent west wall, standing about 2.5m high. The building was in use until a new parish church was built in 1775.
