The former Portobello Old and Windsor Place Parish Church, which served for the united Portobello Old and Windsor Place Church of Scotland congregations. Alastair Cameron. It's now used as a nursery and retirement flats.

Portobello Spiritualist Church, just off Bath Street - it stands down an alley between two buildings. Another view. NT 3065 7400. All Howard Richter (2013). Link.

St. James on Rosefield Place. NT 3036 7379. Alastair Cameron. Link.

St. John (R.C.) on Brighton Place and Sandford Gardens. NT 3045 7376. From an old postcard in Steve Bulman's Collection. A modern view, Alastair Cameron, and another, Steve Bulman (2022). Link.

St. Mark (Scottish Episcopal, 1826). Alastair Cameron. Link. Grade B listed - surely a mistake in the "Notes" where it says consecration of the church was in 1928. It must mean 1828 or thereabouts.

St. Philip. Alastair Cameron.

U.R.C. on Marlborough Street. Alastair Cameron.

Former church at 74 Portobello High Street, now a private residence. No maps available to me label it as a church, though the 25" O.S. map of 1914 has it as Hall. NT 3036 7406. Alastair Cameron. The former church was converted into a Woolworth's store at some point - the ghost of its frontage is still visible, and a photo from when it was a Woolworths can be seen here.
