Arbroath West Kirk. © Derek Robertson. This next view was previously in the Unknown section. Although Brian Curtis's postcard is labelled as St. Margaret, the location was unknown, until solved by Greg Mishevski and Janet Gimber. On Keptie Street, it opened in 1879 as St. Margaret's Chapel of Ease. In 1990 it merged with Ladyloan St. Columba and took its current name of Arbroath WestKirk. This photo can be usefully compared with the postcard. Both Greg and Janet have supplied a number of links as follows - link1, link2, Grade B listed.

The former St. Ninian (1875-1959) on Burnside Drive was built to serve the congregations of two United Free Churches. NO 642 408. © Derek Robertson. After the church became redundant it was in commercial use as a nightclub, and has subsequently been in use as a community youth venue, called Cafe Project, as can be seen here. © Martin Richter (2013).
