St Peter's Scottish Episcopal Church
15 September 2019
Built in 1928 as a Memorial to George Walpole, Bishop of Edinburgh and his wife Mildred, with assistance from Missions in England and USA. It is designed as a miniature Byzantine basilica with a ‘Cross in the Square’ plan form, a high central dome and half dome over the sanctuary apse. This gem of a church featured in “Tiny Churches” (Dixe Wills, 2016) and is Category B Listed. For the founders of the congregation a century ago, the final repeal of 'religious disabilities' was almost within memory. The new 2018 extension to the rear, into a steep gradient, provides modern facilities.
