024.05 This is a gable end wall having an old belfry on the top of it, which upon authorities here quoted are the remains of the old Ph. Church. The church records of Stonehouse go back to 1696 only, and there is no other written accounts of its existence previous to that time, but it is believed to be of a much older date, as stated by W. Dewar, stood at the time of the "Battle of Bothwell Bridge"- ad. 1679. Upon the sam authority (Revd H. Dewar) it is said to have been formerly a R. C. Chapel and existed befor the reformation. There is a martyr's tomb near the remains of the church.
The old gable wal is much the same in appearance as the old church of Glassford.
