A SHORT HISTORY OF STONEHOUSE
NUMBER TWO - ST.NINIAN'S CHURCH
To follow up on the first part of the above I feature a photograph of what remains of the old Kirkyard which is about half a mile from the nearest point of the village. It says a lot for our ancestors that they had to walk in all types of weather to attend their Church.
The undernoted is about the old St. Ninians Church .
Hail! ruined remnants of a church
Old silent belfry grey
With scars of age; the tooth of time
Has gnawed all else away.
Thy voice speaks to the thoughtful mind;
This ancient house of prayer
Revives anew those hallowed scenes
Of beauty, rich and rare.
(From John R.Young's book "Wha's like us ?")
