Aberlady Primary pupils Amelia Young, 6, and Luke Edwards, 5, admired the reconstruction of an 8th-century Christian Cross as it was unveiled at Aberlady memorial garden recently.

The five-metre high cross is a copy of a stone cross which welcomed Anglo-Saxon pilgrims travelling between Iona and Lindisfarne. It is thought to have been erected around the year 750 and just one fragment of it is known to survive, in the Museum of Scotland.
