The Crosses of Kirkmadrine : Discovery of the Missing Third Stone
Gate Posts, Gate Post, Churchyard
September 1561, 1692, 1578
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.
