Mansfield Traquair Centre

Door open days


The Mansfield Traquair Centre is a former Catholic Apostolic Church. The outstanding feature is the scheme of mural decoration painted by Phoebe Anna Traquair in the 1890s.

The renovated building, designed by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson, a well known Scottish architect, now houses the Scottish Council for Voluntary Organisations (SCVO).
