Prestwick Old Parish Church, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on an ancient church in Prestwick, South Ayrshire, S.W. Scotland.

The town of Prestwick has a history dating back to around the 8th century AD, if not earlier. The Old Parish Church probably dates from around the 12th century and was in use until the 1830s. During this long period the form of worship changed from Roman Catholic to Protestant (Presbyterian) as a consequence of the Reformation in 1560. During the 13th century the local monks held the church solely for their own use.
