Outwardly C18th, the East Church stands on the site of an earlier mediaeval building. A large number of early burials were discovered under its floor.
Don’t miss the beautiful painted panels or the C15th grave slab, decorated with a book, weaponry and a sunburst variation on a wheel cross. This is very similar to the fine stones on display at Kirkmichael. This one appears to have been re-used as a step or kerb within the pre-Reformation church.
Church Street is packed with buildings of historic interest and is well worth detailed exploration.
The East Church is open free (donations welcome). For details of hours please see website.
