near to Fogo, Scottish Borders, Great Britain

Fogo Kirk
Fogo Kirk
In 1775 the walls and the roof of the kirk were repaired, which is probably when the "Box-pews" were installed. This was a custom of that time, such that every farm had its own little box. Many kirks were changed in this way although not many still have the "box-pews". These and also the two "lairds lofts" make Fogo kirk unique, and it has been classified as a list "A" Historic Building - both for its building and its interior. The walls were re-plastered in 1817. Since then there has only been one real change to the building and that was in 1925 when the low building at the east end was adapted to make a vestry. It was re-painted in 1992/93
