Polwarth Parish Kirk
Polwarth Parish Kirk
The kirk at historic Polwarth is a Borders jewel sitting atop the braes. It is suggested there has been a church here since 900 AD. The church was consecrated by David de Bereham, Archbishop of St. Andrews in 1242 and dedicated to St. Kentigern (Mungo) It is one of the most interesting churches I have visited and there are inscriptions, in Latin, everywhere you look; the inscriptions tell of the church's history. A crypt containing the remains of local aristocrats, the Humes of Marchmont, is housed in the east end of the building. Looking at Mike Richardson's image NT7449 : The crypt at Polwarth Kirk will show the image better than I can tell.
