[St. Pachomius Library]

Bewcastle, Cumbria

Once the site of a fort associated with Hadrian's Wall, Bewcastle is of interest to Orthodox pilgrims in Britain for its ancient stone cross, the fourteen foot shaft of which still stands. The north face is covered with VII or VIII century Anglo-Saxon ikons; there is an unusual sundial on the south face.
