(NY 4726 8631) Ettleton Church (NR) (Site of)

OS 6" map (1957)

Nothing now remains of Ettleton Church. The churchyard, however, which is still occasionally used, contains a number of (scheduled) early tombstones, cross-shafts etc which have been gathered together and enclosed by a railing. The RCAHMS describe nine of them; those which they date are ascribed to the 13th century.

RCAHMS 1956, visited 1945

There is now no trace of Ettleton Church. The nine cross fragments and several other stones are in a railed enclosure in Ettleton cemetery at NY 4722 8631.

Visited by OS (TRG) 22 June 1979.

The site of Ettleton Church is marked by an L-shaped terrace at roughly the location shown on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Roxburghshire 1862-3, sheet xlv). The terrace extends for about 11m from ESE to WNW by 4.8m transversely, merging with the hillside on the N and W.

The cross fragments, grave slabs and other worked stones are in an iron-railed enclosure inside the cemetery (NY 4722 8631).

Visited by RCAHMS (DCC) 18 April 1996
