Location: Vestibule, Barclay Viewforth Church


This lectern is in memory of Lance Serjeant Robert Scott. It currently sits in the vestibule of Barclay Viewforth Church in Bruntsfield / Tollcross area of Edinburgh.

It is in amongst church furniture from the former Chalmers Church which merged with Lauriston Church in 1958 and then merged with Barclay & Bruntsfield Church in 1980. I suspect it is from Chalmers Church but will check with the Session Clerk.
