Monument inscription images taken in 2013 are now available on this website. The associated transcriptions are complete. Those that exist have been prepared by volunteers, directly from the headstone and memorial photographs they have taken. Some of these headstones are extremely old and weathered, making the inscriptions difficult to read. It is therefore impossible to guarantee the accuracy or completeness of the transcription text.

The Auld Kirk - Introduction

Unused as a church for over twenty years, Tayport Auld Kirk, with its distinctive leaning clock tower, is one of the best known landmarks in the area. It has been recognised by Historic Scotland as a "B" listed building, together with its unique graveyard.

The Auld Kirk Charitable Trust, was constituted as a charity in 2003 in order to bring the building into new uses, in a sustainable plan for the future. The Auld Kirk will be a centre for cultural, social, heritage and educational purposes, and has already hosted several music, arts, and social history events.

The Auld Kirk Charitable Trust is the successor to the Trust Fund which was established when the congregation merged with the church in Queen Street to form Tayport's Parish Church. The Trust is taking forward the task of preserving the historical features of the building as well as promoting its use for the community.

auld kirk, tayport As of 2006, the Auld Kirk Charitable Trust acquired ownership of the Auld Kirk from the Church of Scotland for community use. We are seeking funding for the upkeep of the building and its refurbishment so that it can be put to the best use for the whole of Tayport. Local groups are encouraged to use the building and also to attend committee meetings.
