Abstract


When two pillar crosses were discovered being used as gate posts in Kirkmadrine churchyard, reference was made by local inhabitants to a third which had disappeared. Subsequently, a drawing of the third was found and showed that it bore a Chi-Rho monogram, very rare in Scotland. It was finally discovered in the nearby United Free Church Manse of Stoneykirk. It had also been re-used as a gate post.
