[St Mary's Church, Dalkeith]

Located just inside the gates of Dalkeith Country Park, St Mary's (Episcopal) Church in Dalkeith is a grand building well worth looking inside. The building was consecrated in 1845 and contains a number of interesting architectural features: elegant vaulted ceilings and wooden beams, beautiful stained glass windows, and a very rare water-powered organ (another can be found on the west coast at Kilmun). The website suggests the church is only open (outside services) on a few afternoons each week, but we got lucky on our morning visit.
