Dunfermline Abbey Church Visit Report
Wednesday 10 April 2019

Wed. 10th April-------- Dunfermline Abbey Church.

The present custodian. Elaine Pirrie presented a fulsome account of the events in this historical building, from Celtic beginnings to the pilgrimages  and visits that people make today. In fact , later in April , there will be a plaque in the grounds relating to the role played by the Abbey in today's Pilgrim Route---arrows pointing in all directions.

Highlights were the tomb of Robert the Bruce, the stunning stained glass windows.

The Royal Pew, the carved pulpit & lectern.

The group wandered around at will  , the custodian on the ready for any question.
