Newton Church (ruins of) Site of Grave Yard About 7/8 mile [seven eighths of a mile] N. [north] of the town of Dalkeith

" The tower of the ancient church of Newton which was situated quite at the extremity of the parish is still entire and has been preserved to form a feature in the landscape as seen from the grounds in Dalkeith park. The church-yard around it, where parties have long since ceased to bury has been badly desecrated by the encroachments of the husbandman and many of the monuments removed to make way for the plough. It is hoped that to preserve what yet remains of the olden time,it may still be surrounded by a fence."
