The Medieval Church

Kilconquhar Medieval Church

The 'Old' Church, which occupied the same ground as the current church started off simply with a Nave and Chancel. However, alterations in the 15th century saw a north aisle linked to the Nave by an arcade. Three of the arches with their Norman pillars can still be seen in the Churchyard today.

If you look carefully at the south side of the middle arch you will see the remnants of a carving thought to be a 'Green Man'. Superficially the Green Man would appear to be pagan, but the tradition of the image being carved on to Christian churches exists across Europe.

 More detailed information about Kilconquhar is available in the book 'Kilconquhar - A Hidden Gem' which can be ordered from Irene Wallace.
