[Edrom Church]

An intricate Romanesque arch is all that remains of the old Edrom Parish Church: an early 12th century church close to the Whiteadder Water in the Scottish Borders. The arch owes its survival to its incorporation into an 18th century burial vault - itself of limited interest - and still features beautiful Norman carvings including chevron mouldings and heads spouting foliage. A newer church now stands next door to the burial vault, pictured at the bottom of this page. As for that arch - it's worth a visit if exploring nearby Duns or Manderston.
