Scope and Content Interiorview of Duddingston Parish Church, Old Church Lane, Duddingston Village, Edinburgh Duddingston Church, one of the oldest churches in Scotland still in regular use, was built on land gifted by King David I to the Abbot of Kelso in 1130. The basic structure of the church is Romanesque, with 17th- and 18th-century additions. The only remaining Romanesque feature is the chancel arch, which divides the nave from the chancel. The outer arch is carved with a characteristic zigzag pattern, and the inner arch is formed from small 'logs' or blocks. The responds have carved capitals. The interior of the church was remodelled by Robert Rowand Anderson in 1889 and furnished by Whytock & Reid. Stained glass was inserted in the windows on the south side in 1903, and in the Prestonfield aisle c.1935. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
