Old Photograph Bothkennar Church Scotland

Old photograph of Bothkennar Church near Falkirk, Scotland. The parish of Bothkennar ceased to exist as such and is now a quoad sacra parish under Grangemouth. However, the church, a fine building situated within a pleasant and interesting graveyard, is still used. It was rebuilt in 1789 then remodelled and extended in 1887 but it is evident that substantial parts of the earlier building were incorporated into the new church. Among the grave stones are several embellished with low-relief carvings of sailing ships which commemorate mariners of the parish. There is also a high incidence of castiron grave monuments which reflects the importance of the nearby iron foundries.
