St Kentigern’s Church

Posted by

St Kentigern’s Church is a ruined category B listed building in Lanark, South Lanarkshire. It was previously the parish church of the town.

It is believed that the church was founded by St Kentigern himself shortly before his death in 603 AD. There is documentary evidence of its existence, however, dating back to 1150 AD when King David I granted it to the monastery of Dryburgh. Pope Gregory VIII took the church into his own protection in 1228.
