Allanton Sanctuary is a beautiful harled late Georgian laird’s house, enlarged and remodelled as a mid-Victorian Baronial manor, which is now the European Sanctuary of The World Peace Prayer Society.
It is set in 18 acres of parkland.

The Society was founded in 1955 by the Japanese teacher, philosopher and poet, Masahisa Goi who dedicated his life to peace and humanity.  The Society promotes the message ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth’, through its activities of planting peace poles, world peace flag ceremonies, peace education programmes, and environmental education programmes.
