Selkirk on Wikipedia.
Old O.S. maps mark a
Baptist Chapel on The Valley. This
source says it was originally West United Presbyterian Church (1850) and
after moving to a new church on Ettrick Terrace in 1890, their old building was
taken over by a Baptist Congregation. They moved to a new church on Back Row
about 100 years later, and their old building demolished (before 2008 -
Streetview) some years later
after a period in secular use. As of 2021 the site remains un-developed.

closed two years earlier - but it also fails to identify the church more
closely. However, 2008 Streetviews shows that it was U.R.C.,
