Two 11th or early 12th century interlace stones, a headstone and part of a cross-shaft (see illus) found in Penpont churchyard, are in Dumfries Museum. The present church was rebuilt in 1867. It belonged of old to the monks of Holyrood, and Truckell says of the medieval church that its ruins remain in the churchyard.
