CRICHTON MEMORIAL CHURCH AND CRICHTON CENTRAL
4-5 September 2021
The Crichton Memorial Church, the focal point of the 85 acre estate, is cathedral-style, designed by Edinburgh architect Sydney Mitchell, 1890-97. The Church features a nave, chancel, transepts and a 123 feet high square tower over the crossing. The richly detailed exterior is of red sandstone from Locharbriggs and the elegant interior features sandstone from nearby Thornhill. Inside the church you will find a stunning oak roof and floors of Irish and Sicilian marble under foot and superb furnishings, including a stone carving by William Vickers of Glasgow illuminated by the impressive stained glass by Oscar Paterson of Glasgow.

During this initial phase, the cafe will be open from 10am to 4pm, 7 days a week. You’ll find everything from tea and cake to coffee and a bacon roll as well as beer and pizza on offer daily.
