Scottish National Church
Building From 1719 To 1909
From the church's website:
Crown Court Church is unique in its history as the longest-established Presbyterian church in England, dating from 1711. The Church of Scotland has been active in London since the time of James VI, King of Scots, who became King James I of England in 1603. There is some evidence that courtiers of the King who had followed him from Scotland worshipped in a chapel in the precincts of the old Whitehall Palace. This site became known as “Scotland Yard” and subsequently housed the original offices of the Metropolitan Police. There has been a Scottish Kirk on the present site in Covent Garden since 1719. The current building was completed in 1909, replacing the original.
The ever-valuable British History provides this picture, captioned "The Scotch National Church, Crown Court" but it puzzles us because it does not appear to date from 1719 - more like the late 19th century Victorian Venetian style. Perhaps there were two, or more, buildings prior to the current one.
