Palmerston Place Church Edinburgh
Palmerston Place Church Edinburgh
Palmerston Place Church, Edinburgh, is a congregation which started life in a chapel in Rose Street from 1821 that later became part of the United Presbyterian Church of Scotland. Pressures on space led to the construction of a new building in the early 1870s. Most of the Rose Street congregation moved to the new church in Palmerston Place in the West End when it opened in May 1875.

The building cost 17,750 and originally seated 900 people. The Edinburgh architects Peddie & Kinnear seem to have sought inspiration for the facade from the 17th century Parisian church of Saint-Sulpice.
