010.02 A neat plain building situated on the banks of the Whiteadder & although a church was founded here in the early part of the 7th Century it is very doubtful whether any of the old building now remains as part of the present edifice. The writer of New Statistical account of Berwickshire in pages 108-9 States - "The Church of St. Bathans is a very ancient building. The north and East walls still bear marks of Antiquity. In the former is to be seen an Arched door, now built up, which Communicated with the Nuns. This refers to a Convent connected with, & adjoining the Church. The ancient Gothic Architecture of the East window is still in Some measure preserved, & in the wall near the Altar was a Stone font with a Leaden pipe in the bottom. The building was formerly large, measuring 58 feet by 26; but about the end of last Century it was greatly contracted by the removal of the West wall to a position nearer the Centre".
