Trinity College Church

Here is a view of the choir, looking east in Trinity College Church.  This church was dismantled from its old site in Low Calton, to enable the railway to be built.

The stones were left on Calton Hill for many  years.  Many of the stones were removed in the years before the church was partially rebuilt on a new site near Jeffrey Street.

The picture in this engraving shows the church at its original site.

This engraving is based on one of the many drawings of religious buildings from Billings.  These were published in the book Ecclesiastical Architecture of Scotland, published by Blackwood & Son, around 1847
