UKNIWM: 53467

Abbey St Bathans is/was a sparse parish in the Lammermuirs in the north of Berwickshire. Only memorial is this plaque.

I include here a picture & exterior.

Abbey St Bathans Parish Church closed on Sunday 2nd October 2011 and taken on by some parishioners. They've tastefully floored and plastered it and redecorated. Memorials remains 'in situ'.

Building is to remain in community use.
