Old Photograph Parish Church Mouswald Scotland
Old photograph of the Parish Church and cemetery in Mouswald in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. Mouswald is a parish and village 7 miles South East of Dumfries, and 10 miles West by North of Annan. It is situated in that district formerly called the Stewartry of Annandale, midway between the rivers Nith and Annan, and was anciently covered with wood, as its name implies, " The Wood near the Moss. " It is bounded by the parishes of Lochmaben, Dalton, Rothwell, and Torthorwald, and contains the village of its own name, and the hamlets of Old Brocklehurst and Cleughbrae. The parish was traversed by the old Glasgow and South Western railway, and by the coach roads from Dumfries to Annan and Ruthwell. The parish is in the presbytery of Lochmaben and synod of Dumfries.
