Statement of Interest

Formerly the Arnot Manse, Hawfield House was sold to a private buyer in 1975 after being empty for some while. Meetings were held at 'Haw Field' after the original Secession of 1733. The land was purchased in 1749 (or 59), with work on the original church commencing in 1761. The present owner has old documents and believes the manse to have been started in 1763 which the rear elevation would substantiate. However, the current church is dated 1800 and this coincides with the building style of the principal elevation of the former manse.
