    After visiting a nearby Asylum this was a quick explore on the way home, JFR420 and and myself waited for a good opportunity too see if access to the imposing church was possible. It is situated on a busy road surrounded by overlooking neighbours, we took a brief opportunity with the passing traffic and got into the site. Finding an access point was a different story, never have I had to clamber through as much brambles, nettles and thistles before and they hurt, we were in!

    Maison Dieu is a Former Church of Scotland Property built in 1891 by Architect Sir George Washington Browne.

    The church has lain empty since the 1980's and in suprisingly good condition externally, unfortunately with it being on a busy road we didnt stop to take externalsbefore going in, and by the time we came out it was dark. Another visit maybe required!

    The church was sold in 2004 to a private developer who applied for planning permission to convert the church into residental accommodation. The developer went into liquidation sometime in between 2009 and 2011with the property being back on the market for sale.


    The main church chapel, this is laiden with pigeon sh!t so if attempting a visit make sure you wear a mask! Someone has been making passageways through it all though!
