Crichton Memorial Church

The focal point of the 85 acre Crichton estate is the cathedral-style Crichton Memorial Church, designed by Edinburgh architect Sydney Mitchell, 1890-97. The Church features a nave, chancel, transepts and a 123 feet high square tower over the crossing.

The richly detailed exterior is of red sandstone from Locharbriggs and the elegant interior features sandstone from nearby Thornhill.

As a non denominational church, The Crichton Memorial Church is available for weddings, graduations, concerts and events and has been host to BBC productions such as Songs of Praise.
