Artist's Description

An Historic Scotland Category C(S) Listed Building

St Abbs Church on the B6438 as you enter the Fishing Village of St Abbs in the south east coast of Scotland, in the Berwickshire area of the Scottish Borders. Originally built as St Abbs Free Church, the building is now administered by The Church of Scotland.

This symmetrical plain Norman style church was opened in 1892 and renovated in 1947.

Rapeseed fields can be found all over the UK. In the Spring and Summer months they provide a bright yellow landscape. Rapeseed is grown for the production of animal feed, vegetable oil for human consumption, and biodiesel.

St Abbs was originally known as Coldingham Shore, the name was changed in the 1890’s to St Abbs. The new name was derived from St Abb’s Head, a rocky promontory located to the north of the village, itself named after St Aebbe.

St Abbs Church is an Historic Scotland Category C(S) listed building. HB Number 46660.

Camera: Canon EOS 60D
