Kilbride Church

Map Reference: N304254 (2304, 2254)

The gables of this small church survive to full height but otherwise only a portion of the south wall remains. The church is about 16m long and 7.5m wide internally. The walls are about 1m thick. In the east gable there is a good twin-light ogee-headed window with external hood-moulding and horizontal terminals.

There is a narrow round-headed slit window in the west gable and remains of two windows in the south wall. Fragments of window tracery found in the graveyard may come from one of these southern windows. The doorway does not survive but it may have been at the west end of the south wall. The churchyard contins many 18th and 19th century memorials with some good carved faces.
