Bewcastle

Location

Bewcastle Castle
Cumbria
England

Further away, but well worth the trip, is the castle at Bewcastle, built on the site of a Roman camp – and don't miss the 7th century carved Celtic Cross beside the austere little church (one of three such crosses in the Borders; one at Ruthven in Dumfriesshire beautifully preserved in the church there; the third a fragment of Acca's Cross in Hexham Abbey).
