Netherton Cross, Hamilton
This evening, I am posting information on the Netherton Cross which now stands in the grounds of Hamilton Old Parish Church, Scotland.
Key facts concerning the Cross:
- Dates from the 10th/11th centuries.
- Oldest example of Christianity in Hamilton.
- An example of British Strathclyde sculpture influenced by Manx-Norse design.
- Originally stood in open ground in what is now Strathclyde Country Park.
- Moved to current location in 1925 with preservation in mind.
