Ruthwell is a small village close to the Solway Firth and lies between the towns of Dumfries and Annan.
The Ruthwell Cross is one of the finest Anglo-Saxon crosses in the UK and can be found inside Ruthwell church. Ruthwell’s most famous inhabitant was Henry Duncan who opened the world’s first commercial savings bank in 1810. The Savings Bank Museum in Ruthwell tells the whole story.
