Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Of Kirkpatrick Durham

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Kirkpatrick Durham, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. This village is located 6 miles north of Castle Douglas. The village was developed in the late 18th century as a handloom weaving centre, within the existing parish of the same name. The present church was built in 1850 by Dumfries based architect Walter Newall. In the 19th century the minister here was nominally the Reverend George Duncan. Isabelle Wight Duncan was his wife and mother to nine of their children. In 1860 she published a book that went up against the Origin of the Species. Her book reconciled the emeerging geological discoveries with the stories of Genesis.
