St Giles’ Files Ep.14: Happenings and Events

In this episode, Stephen elaborates on last week’s episode and digs deeper into what St Giles’ has been used for. First, he looks at some events at the turn of the Twentieth Century then, compares these to events he has seen in St Giles’ and finally, discusses if St Giles’ does a good job as it is often seen as the spiritual centre of Scotland.

We didn’t have a good photo of the memorial Stephen mentioned, so you’ll just have to come and see it!
