In a beautiful area of Dumfries & Galloway,SW Scotland,I came across this lovely little church.According to the church website
It was built in1849-50 by the architect Walter Newall at a cost of £1240.He built many local churches which are characterized by a square end tower surmounted by four spiked pinnacles. Other examples of his work can be seen at Buittle, Anwoth, Lochrutton, Kirkmahoe and our linked church Parton. He also designed the nearby House at Glenlair, home of James Clerk Maxwell the scientist and first director of the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge and the greatest genius Scotland has ever produced.
It is said that Maxwell started his education at Samuel Ferguson’s schoolhouse in the village.
The design of the church is late Georgian Gothic despite its Victorian date.
