Photographs Of Kilconquhar Old Kirk

Kilconquhar Old Kirk

The remains of the Old Parish Kirk of Kilconquhar stand in the churchyard, East of the modern church and consist of three arches of indeterminate date, each some twelve feet' wide. The arcade is incorporated in a burial chamber, part of the back wall of which may have belonged to the aisle. The remains of a recumbent slab showing a figure in armour lie to the South of the church. The arches indicate a structure of very late date, probably about the time of the Reformation. The church is supposed to be of Culdee origin, the suggested derivation being Kil-Conneuchar, i.e. the cell of Conacher. It was granted to the convent of North Berwick in 1200, and was re-dedicated in 1243.
