Overview

11 September 2021 (10:00-16:00) Midlothian Crichton was built as a Collegiate
Church by Sir William Crichton, Lord Chancellor of Scotland in the time of
King James II. William Crichton also greatly enlarged the nearby Crichton
Castle. The church is one of the few remaining Collegiate Churches in Scotland
still in use. Subject to major restorations in its nearly 600 years history,
the building is now in the care of a Trust. The Trust hosts a programme of
concerts and ecumenical services reflecting the hospitality of the local
community, drawing together the Church of Scotland, the Roman Catholic Church
and the Scottish Episcopal Church. In addition to a fine suite of 19th C
stained glass windows by Ballantyne and Gardiner, there is a unique pipe organ
built by Joseph Brook which has survived for over 100 years in its original
state. Facilities Disabled WC WC Refreshments Parking Limited Access For Doors
Open Days 2021 visitors can watch a demonstration of the unique pipe organ
built by Joseph Brook from 14:30 to 15:30. No booking required. Please come in
