A short history of St James the Less church is coming soon….


Up The Lane – oral history project


A book with our full history was published in 2019.  It is the result of interviews carried out by Penicuik Oral History Resource.  It is a miscellany of themed personal reminiscences interwoven with humour.  It describes the life of the church and its place in the community both local and further afield.

Along the way it gives an overview of recent developments in the church’s history.

Dip in as you will, and please enjoy your time spent with the friendly, supportive family of St James the Less, Penicuik.

We are indeed, still up the lane!

Copies cost £10 and can be bought from the Rector.  ISBN Number:  978-5272-4789-5
