Full Description

A former Free Church of Scotland, now converted to use as a barn. <1>

The adjacent manse was constructed in 1844. <2>

Gifford seems to be referring to this building when he describes it as being built c.1845 with walls heightened in 1855. However the rest of the description does not match and appears to refer to the former United Free Church to the north (see MHG52667). There may be some confusion here. <3><4>
