Once the site of a fort associated with Hadrian's
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
Anglo-Saxon ikons; there is an unusual sundial
on the south face.
Norman Hugh Redington
