005 [situation] On Chapel Hill

On the spot Called "Chapel Hill" stood the Church of the Ancient Parish of Binny which Parish became annexed to that of Linlithgow immediately after the Reformation. Nothing is known of this edifice beyond the mere account handed down by tradition viz that it stood here. All traces of the foundation have been lost for many years. Mr. West of E. East] Broadlaw who resided near this spot sixty years ago says that even then no remains of the Church were visible but the old people of that period still remembered when portions of it were to be seen. The spot presents every indication of the Church having stood here - the wicket gate and the avenue lined with fine old trees - together with the slightly raised eminence in the field Called "Chapel Hill" on which humain bones have been found (and are still found) in great quantities, and which tradition says is haunted, - all place the matter beyond a doubt - That the Church stood here is further Corroborated by the general tradition of the district - See description of Chapel Hill - The grave yard has enclosed the structure and the area of the whole extended over the space of Chapel Hill.
