This is the remaining part of the original 12th century abbey dedicated in 1147. Despite being a resident of Dunfermline or nearby for more than 30 years, I didn't realise that this part of the Abbey is under the care of historic Scotland and the modern part ( well 19th century ) is the still functioning Church of Scotland place of worship. I thought it was all one big active church.
