The present church, built in 1888, replaces the church, manse and grounds recorded on the 1st edition OS map. There is no sign of an associated burial ground. The contemporary manse is now a private dwelling a short distance to the east, while the modern manse sits behind the church.

The original site of the Free Church and associated Burial Ground is shown on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map. The present Free Church was built to the E in 1888. The site of the original church and burial ground now appears to be in use as the garden for a domestic dwelling. <1><2>
