Church Overview

The chevron-patterned Norman doorway at the south-west corner of the church dates from the 12th century. The church was largely rebuilt in 1878 with the church hall, vestry and tower added in 1905-7. Buried in the kirkyard are the famous 17th-century Reforming minister, Henry Erskine, and the 1960s World Champion racing driver, Jim Clark.
