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.
