Scotland St. Cuthbert's Way (PiP)

Scotland St. Cuthbert's Way (PiP) 

Maxton Church
The church stands on a hill overlooking the river Tweed. It is believed that there has been a church on or near today's site for almost 1000 years.
Sacred inscriptions can be seen on both the north and south walls. The HEBREW inscription on the south wall translates "Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound, Selah". 1724 :- "O come and let us worship and bow. (These are taken from Psalm 89.15 and Psalm 95.6). The Latin inscription on the north wall, above the stained glass windows, translates "Jesus is our safety".

The bell bears the inscription "1609, Soli Deo Gloria Jan Burgerhuys me fecit". It was made in the well-known factory in Middleburg in Holland.

There are two stained glass windows in the north wall which are believed to have been designed by James Henry Coram , a London architect.
