010.15 On the north side of the road leading to Dunse and a short distance from Preston Bridge are the remains of Preston Church, with a graveyard attached, which is still used as a burying place for the parish of Buncle. There is but a very small portion of the original building remaining about which there is nothing worthy of particular notice, neither are there any particulars regarding its history. The parishes of Bunkle and Preston, originally separate charges, were about 120 years ago united as one Cure & for several years after this union Public worship was performed in each alternately. This continued for several years, but both churches coming to such repair , that of Bunkle being the most centrical, was sufficiently fitted up to accomadate the whole population and the other left in a precarious state.
