Malcolm's Cross


A cross was erected at the site where King Malcolm of Scotland was killed during the Battle of Alnwick in 1093 AD. The pedestal is all that remains of the Medieval cross, which was replaced by the current stone cross in 1774, when the monument was restored by Elizabeth Seymour, First Duchess of Northumberland, whose family line included Malcolm as an ancestor. Malcolm's Cross is Grade II listed.
