Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

A few days ago I posted a photograph of the old church at Temple and had intended to follow it with this shot. Oh, well, here it is.

This picture shows a view from the window of 13-14th century church to the new 19th century church which was built to replace it. As w/s, I will show the exterior of the churches so that you will be able to get an impression of the two styles but, I had to post this shot, aesthetically, I loved the idea of the old looking wistfully towards its replacement.

From Undiscovered Scotland:
This is the Old Parish Church. It's tempting to think of this as part of the Templar monastery from the 1100s, but it seems much more likely to have been built in the 1300s by the Knights of St John: though probably reusing elements of an earlier Templar church.

Opposite the Old Parish Church is Shillinghill, built in 1832 as a replacement for the old church, but in more recent times itself converted to residential use. To the east of the Old Parish Church is what looks like it might have once been a mill building, but in fact turns out to have been built as the manse for the 1832 church, on part of the original foundations of the cloister of the Templar monastery.

Here is a larger version.

Have a lovely day, Bev :-)
