A model for other church buildings

John R Hume reflects on the rich history of a Borders church.

THE parish of Fogo is in what was historically the county of Berwickshire, now part of Scottish Borders.

The parish was given by David I in the 12th century to the Earl of Dunbar, and in 1147 Earl Gospatrick in turn granted it to the Abbey of Kelso. There was a Roman camp near the south-western edge of the parish, which has been for centuries used for arable farming. The parish church is set in the ‘kirkton’ of Fogo, and was described in the 1890s as an ‘old and picturesque ivy-mantled building. It had been enlarged in 1853, and contained 278 sittings. At that time the population was just over 400.
