(NT 24518 63038) Church (NR) (Remains of)

OS 6" map (1957)

Glencorse church, built 1665, and mistakenly regarded by the RCAHMS as cruciform, has developed from an originally rectangular plan, the N and S aisles being added in 1699. There is a later W tower with a timber spire, but the building is now roofless, having been superseded in the late 19th century by a much larger church.

RCAHMS 1929 ; G Hay 1957.

As described above.

Visited by OS (RD) 16 January 1970

Apart from the wooden tower being in a ruined state there is no change to the previous field report. Restoration work is being carried out on the church.

Visited by OS (BS) 9 December 1975.
