More about this scene


Caption for Whitekirk, St Mary's Church C1955: Here we see the 15th-century cruciform church of St Mary's, its massive tower surmounted by a wooden spire. The church was targeted by the suffragettes during a campaign of violence following the government's refusal to grant votes for women. Other targets for fire-bombing included Farrington Hall and Leuchars railway station.
