This memorial is listed as DORNOCK PARISH COLUMN and has the reference:
UKNIWM Ref: 44122.
OS Map Ref: NY240663
(edit by spoons - Revised OS Ref (by GPS) NY 24018 66287)

The memorial is on the very western extremity of Eastriggs village on the B721 and is possibly half way between Eastriggs and Dornock.
Sculpted by Beattie & Co. Carlisle
