Carstairs Parish Church

Carstairs Parish Church is a Grade B-listed building built in 1794 and is the centre of community life. Urgent structural issues were discovered and without attention the building would continue to deteriorate. Overall cost for the repair of the church was in excess of £340,000 and Valencia Communities Fund was asked to fund the external repairs - about 15% of the total costs. The repairs have transformed the look of the church, revealing details that were lost to grime and erosion, and the future of the church has been secured.
