1000 flock to see movie church

A VILLAGE church used in the making of a Hollywood film saw a record 1000 visitors when it opened its doors for a special event.

Bangour Village Church, used in the filming of The Jacket starring Keira Knightley and produced by George Clooney, was open on Sunday, September 17 as part of the Scotland-wide Doors Open Day event, which allows people to visit many buildings which are usually off-limits to the public.

The open days are co-ordinated by the Scottish Civic Trust and supported by Historic Scotland, as part of Scotland's contribution to European Heritage Days. The Bangour buildings, including the church and hospital, are set to be developed into a new village complex.

Andrew Burrell, managing director of developer the Burrell Company, said: "The Doors Open Day event was a huge hit amongst people who were interested in the beauty and architecture of the church and also in the future plans for the area, which were very positively received."

The West Lothian church was built in commemoration of the role the hospital and its staff played during the First World War as an ecumenical place of worship. The former hospital, which was used initially for treating psychiatric patients before acting as a military hospital during both the first and second world wars, is set to be converted into more than 100 homes.
Hope in reality is the worst of all evils because it prolongs the torments of man.
