I am looking for any information regarding the Selkirk West United Presbyterian Church built around 1880 and demolished in the early 1980s
I have copies of the plans of the church designed by John Bennie Wilson from Glasgow. The stained glass windows and any really any information or images are of particular interest.

Hello
The only information I have is a photograph & transcription of the WW1 memorial which was installed into the parish church.

The Churches and churchyards of Selkirkshire by Dr G A C Binnie has some information on the church - unfortunately, I have mislaid my copy so can't confirm anything.

Have you tried http://www.selkirkshireantiquariansociety.co.uk ?

Thank you for your reply. I will try the society as suggested. I am looking for some images of the church internally as well as externally.
Anything really is appreciated.
