Bewcastle Cross, graveyard & exhibition centre

  • Description

    "The Bewcastle: Past and Present exhibition, housed in a converted building in the churchyard of St Cuthbert's church, was opened by Rory Stewart, MP for Penrith and the Border, on 14 March 2014. It is a celebration of over 2500 years of local history - from the Bronze Age to the Roman occupation, through Norman and medieval times, to the Border Reivers and the more peaceful scattered farming community of today. There is a photo of the mural, an impression of Bewcastle through the ages by Kate Norris, on the inner wall of the exhibition here [[1068860]] The house behind is the Old Rectory, now a private house which was listed under the name 'Banna', after the Roman Fort of Birdoswald. As it actually stands within the Roman Fort of Bewcastle, a better name might have been, 'Fanum Cocidii'." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2016.
