Dunlop, Church of Scotland
Church of Scotland,
Built in 1835, replacing a smaller vestige, the first parishioners walked through the doors a few weeks before Christmas 1835.
The main floor plan faces an East South East / West North West direction, with a smaller gable forming the buildings T-shape facing North North East. This North facing gable is all that remains of the original Kirk pre 1835. Little is known about the place of worship preceding the construction of the one that sits here today. What is certain is that there was a semblance of interest in preserving what was salvageable from the past.
A date of 1641 on the gable is testament to the rich history of what was here before. The Kirk graveyard is the only burial site in the whole Parish. Suggesting that later Kirks simply replaced previous ones, all sharing their roots from the very first in the Parish many hundreds of years ago.
