Old Photograph Established Church Inverbervie Scotland


Old photograph of the Established Church in Inverbervie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. A coastal Scottish town located South of Stonehaven. Inverbervie appears in written history at least as far back as the 12th century AD; in a document relating to Arbroath Abbey, Simon of Inverbervie is noted as having witnessed a charter transferring the lands of Balfeith to the Abbey. Inverbervie was formerly a royal burgh from 1342 to 1975 and a parliamentary burgh from 1708 to 1950, the former status being conferred by King David II of Scotland for hospitality he and his Queen received when shipwrecked there the previous year when returning from exile.
