Statement of Interest

The present rectory, cottage and church hall were built at the same time as St Mary's Episcopal Church as the choir school and quarters for the choirboys and choirmaster. They were designed by John Henderson and were endowed by the Dalmahoy estate. The choir school was founded in 1850 and lasted until 1930. The former rectory of St Mary's (now the Ratho Park Hotel) was also designed by Henderson but is not listed as it has been altered substantially.
