Cockburnspath Church


The church, at the centre of the village has four singular features: the round tower, the bell, the burial aisle and the sundial.  the distinctive round tower was added in about 1650 and the height increased 12 ft in 1827 on the suggestion of Lady Dunglass.  The present fine toned bell was a gift in 1837 from the Broadwood family, once proprietors of Fulfordless, although a bell is recorded as having been in place as early as 1644.  the burial aisle is at the east end of the church.  It was built by the laird, Willian Arnot in 1614 and kept in repair by his successor, Sir William Nicholson, who reserved it for his family.  The sundial is on the south west corner of the church and therefore able to give afternoon times.  A new vestry was built in 2003. 

Sunday 11.00 Am
Coffee & Tea are served after most joint services and there is usually
at least one Family Service each month (usually on the Third Sunday).  Children are always welcome in the church and there is a “goodie bag” with toys to choose from, and a small vestry should they need to go out at any point.
