I am looking into the history of King Street in Castle Douglas and have been told there was a church, where exactly I am unsure, but if anyone could help with names or pictures I would very much appreciate it. I have heard that it was situated near what is now a convenience store.

Does anyone know when the little station cottage got turned into? My mother lived there with Margaret Brown and James Brown, Jimmy as he was known, in - what do you call the street?

My mother was born in Castle Douglas, her name was Anne Tompson. Her dad's name was Wilf Tompson. She had lots of sisters and brothers, if anyone thinks they are related, please email me. My mother is 74 now, she moved around a bit and now lives in Northumberland. I would love to hear from anyone who knows her. It's a great place, I spent lot of time there when I was young.
