Church Overview

Built in 1881 to a design by John Biggar, a church with some interesting works of art including a large icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa, Poland. This is by K Kryska 1944, the captain of Polish Forces based in Peebleshire. Other monuments include ones dating from 1861 and a copy of the bust of John Ogilvie. The sanctuary has been brought back into use, and a narthex has been built inside the church to provide toilet and kitchen facilities. A rood screen division within the church provides a gathering and social space towards the rear of the nave.
