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.

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.

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).
