Pettinain Memorial Tablet

WM name reference PMT1

Current Location:

Pettinain Kirk, Pettinain, Lanarkshire


Unlike many of the Lanarkshire villages, Pettinain only ever had one Church, the Church of Scotland building. Its site is in a prominent position on the hilltop beside the old village. Unfortunately, it was closed by the Church of Scotland in 1995 and sold to the Scottish Redundant Churches Trust for a nominal fee of £1, to avoid it being sold for housing. Inside the church there is a beautiful marble tablet which records the Roll of Honour* of those men from the church and the parish who sacrificed their lives
