Auchtertool Kirk Est. 1178. Welcome to the website of Auchtertool Parish Church

Stained Glass Windows


East window: St Andrews and St John

The windows in the east wall of the church showing St. Andrew and St. John are dedicated to the memory of the Liddell family. The inscription reads, “In affectionate remembrance of our grandparents and other families of Kirkton and Milton of Auchtertool. In loving memory of our father Major General John Liddell CB and mother Francis Robina Liddell and our brother John their eldest son.”

From Kirk Session records of 1894, “a letter was received from Mrs. Walker, Lomberdale Hall, Bakewell, expressing a desire to put in a stained glass window in the church, should the church be renovated, as a memorial of her deceased relatives, the Liddells of Kirkton—she being niece of the late Miss Eliza Liddell, the last of a family long connected with the Parish.”


South Window: Mourning the children killed on Auchtertool’s railway line

An extract from West Fife Echo of 20th Feb 1907 “Double Railway Fatality” tells the story:

“A sad accident, resulting in the death of two lads, occurred on the West of Fife Mineral Railway near Auchtertool at about 6.15 am on Wednesday morning. The lads were Andrew Mackay, 15 years of age, Pit Drawer, son of David Mackay, Carter, Auchtertool and John Grieve, 17 years of age, Pit Pony Driver, son of David Grieve, Weighman, Auchtertool.

Along with two other lads named Dempster and Ballingall, Mackay and Grieve were proceeding to their work at the Lochhead Pit of the Lochgelly Iron and Coal Company. The four were walking abreast on the railway. Owing to the wild blizzard which was raging at the moment they did not hear the approach of a single engine travelling in the direction of Cowdenbeath which overtook them.

Mackay and Grieve were killed instantaneously. Dempster was also struck but only slightly, and pushed out of the way. His injuries were trifling and Ballingall escaped unhurt.”

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help reduce content from being stolen? I’d definitely appreciate it.
