The Churches of Britain and Ireland
|Moffat, Dumfries & Galloway
Of the Old Parish Church (on High Street), all that remains is one gable wall, also seen here to the right hand side of the graveyard. One monument is particularly impressive. Circa NT 085 051. All © Steve Bulman (2013).
An old un-dated postcard showing the fragmentary remains of St. Cuthbert's Chapel, which stands half a mile or so west of Moffat at NT 074 055. From Steve Bulman's Collection. Link. Grade B listing, which also has a number of photos.
The former St. Luke (R.C.) on Mansfield Place was built as Episcopal in 1866, and is now a private residence. Can you advise the closure date? © Peter Amsden (2014).
The former St. Mary (United Free, built as Free Church, opening in 1892) on Harthope Place and Academy Road. Built as a Free Church in 1890-2, it is now used as flats. Can you advise the closure date? © Peter Amsden (2014). Another view, © Steve Bulman (2015). Undated sale notice.
On a visit in 2013, I followed Church Street, and found a probable former church on Annanside, but had been unable to find any information about it - can you oblige? Janet Gimber has advised that it was originally a Free Church. After closure it spent many years as a Fire Station (link). Carole Sage has drawn my attention to this on-line reference, which, assuming that this is the same Free Church, says it was built in 1844. NT 083 051. © Steve Bulman (2013).
