Manor Kirk

First referred to in 1186 as ‘the Chapel of Maineure’. Tradition speaks of an earlier Chapel of the 4th century dedicated to St Gordian, a martyred Roman soldier. The present building was completed in 1874. The bell, rung before every service, is inscribed ‘In honore Santi Gordiani MCCCCLXXVIII’ and is one of the oldest bells in use in Scotland. Pewter baptismal basin, inscribed ‘Manner Kirk 1703’. The pipe organ, originally built by Peter Conacher in 1889, came from Pencaitland Church and was re-built in Manor Kirk in October 2002.

Lyne Kirk

Lyne Church occupies the brow of a small, pronounced ridge a hundred yards north of the A72 at a point a little under five miles west of Peebles. Access is along an extremely minor road that leaves the A72 a little to the west of the church and encounters a locked gate where it begins to curve round to approach the church. It is possible to park here in a way that will not cause an obstruction.

Records suggest that there has been a church here since the 1100s, at which time it was a “dependency” or subsidiary of Stobo Church. It became a parish church in its own right in the early 1300s.
