Person NameMelrose Parish Church
ActivityMelrose Parish Church lies on St Mary’s Road near the Abbey. The previous church, which was built in 1810, was burnt down in 1908 whist workmen were doing repairs. The tower survived and was incorporated into the new church. Melrose parish was granted to Melrose Abbey and, before the Reformation, a monk was supplied to carry out pastoral duties. There has been a minister there since 1562. Melrose Old and Melrose St Aidan’s united in 1946 to form Melrose St Cuthbert’s Church and in 1984 they united with High Cross Church as Melrose Parish Church.
