Moffat on Wikipedia.
 

Of the Old Parish Church (on High Street), all that remains is one gable wall, also seen here to the right hand side of the graveyard. One monument is particularly impressive. NT 0859 0517. All Steve Bulman (2013). Category C listed.

Old Well Theatre (2021 Streetview) on Old Well Road is a former United Presbyterian Church. It pre-dates a map of 1899. NT 0866 0538.

St. Andrew (CoS, 1887). NT 0844 0512. Stuart Mackrell. Two additional views - 1, 2, both Chris Stafford (2013), and another, Peter Amsden (2014). Link. Category A listed, wherein it's dated to 1885-7.

An old un-dated postcard showing the fragmentary remains of St. Cuthbert's Chapel, which stands half a mile or so west of Moffat at NT 0740 0550. From Steve Bulman's Collection. Link. Grade B listing, which also has a number of photos.

St. John the Evangelist (Episcopal) on Burnside, built in 1951 on the site of an 1879 tin tabernacle. NT 0867 0521. Peter Amsden (2014). Link. Category B listed.

St. Luke (R.C.) on Mansfield Place was built as Episcopal in 1865. NT 0860 0528. Peter Amsden (2014). Link.

The former St. Mary (United Free, built as Free Church, opening in 1892) on Harthope Place and Academy Road. Now used as flats. Can you advise the closure date? NT 0843 0554. Peter Amsden (2014). Another view, Steve Bulman (2015). Undated sale notice.

On a visit in 2013, I followed Church Street, and found a probable former church on Annanside, but had been unable to find any information about it - can you oblige? Janet Gimber has advised that it was originally a Free Church. After closure it spent many years as a Fire Station (link). Carole Sage has drawn my attention to this on-line reference, which, assuming that this is the same Free Church, says it was built in 1844. NT 0833 0513. Steve Bulman (2013).
