  • Torphichen Preceptory- Historic Scotland
  • Torphichen Preceptory is an unusual and fascinating glimpse into Scottish history.

    Originally built in the 12th century around an existing church, it was then expanded the following century. The building encompassed a cruciform shaped church, with a nave, central tower, transepts and choir, whose tower and transepts remain, and a number of domestic buildings including a hospital. The church was extended again in the 1400′s , and a cloiste completed.

    The church was associated with the Preceptory of the Knights Hospitaller of the Order of St John of Jerusalem in the 13th century. The Order maintained just two such establishments in Britain, the other being in London.
