Gefrin was the Royal Township of the Seventh Century Anglo Saxon Kings of Northumbria.

The plaque tells how the missionary Paulinus preached Chritianity to the paople for 36 days and then baptised them in the nerby River Glen (or were they trying to end it all after 36 days of Jesus stuff being rammed down their throats.)

pretty low lying for a settlement from then. I guess the rich arable land and the full river were the draws.

Beautiful scenery near Kirknewton, pass this way to access the College Valley.
