St Cuthbert Parish Church

By mac
St Cuthbert’s Parish Church is believed to be the oldest Christian site in Edinburgh. We have been nurturing hearts for God since St Cuthbert founded the first church on this site around 670 AD.
In the surrounding graveyard, one of the largest in Edinburgh from the Burke and Hare era, you can find such varied people as Thomas De Quincey, writer of Confessions of an English Opium Eater; William Macao, first naturalised Chinese citizen of Scotland; and John Napier, father of logarithms.
The 1894 church designed by Hippolyte Blanc and the Memorial Chapel, where Agatha Christie was remarried in 1930. You can see our stunning examples of stained-glass, including our famous Tiffany window, with the image of David heading off to face Goliath.

Interesting capture, Ian, and it must be mono for me. A very interesting piece of history behind this old Church and its cemetery.

An excellent image and very interesting narrative.
Mono works the better for me, Ian.

Like the side/backlighting, especially on the bluebells in the foreground, which probably shows up best in b&w.
