Ashgill, Rorison Memorial Church (CoS). Alan Matthew (2012).

Biggar, Biggar Kirk (CoS). A difficult church to photograph well. Two additional views - 1, 2. Closed when I visited, this link has interior views. NT 040 379. Link1. Link2. The nearby Moat Park Heritage Centre is the former Moat Park Church (1865). Its various denominations can be followed on old maps, and Janet Gimber advises that these include UP Church (1897, presumably United Presbyterian), UF Church (1910, United Free), the unhelpful "Church" (1940), and Gillespie Moat Park Church (CoS) in 1975. NT 039 378. Link. The former Gillespie Church, now the Gillespie Centre. It closed before 1977 (see link). Old maps show the following - South UP Church (1858), Ch. (1897), UF Ch. (1910), Ch. (1940), and in 1975 as Ch. Hall. This is presumably the Church Hall for Moat Park Church. Circa NT 041 377. All Steve Bulman (2013).
