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. http://www.cumbria24.com/news/2014/03/14/new-exhibition-tiny-village-big-history 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 [] 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.
