Kirkpatrick Durham is a village and parish in Dumfries and Galloway, south-west Scotland. It is located 6 miles (9.7 km) north of Castle Douglas. The village was developed in the late 18th century as a handloom weaving centre, within the existing parish of the same name. The present church was built in 1850 by Dumfries-based architect Walter Newall.[1]
