Mansfield Place Church
Mansfield Place Church on the corner of Broughton Street and East London Street has been used both as a nightclub and Fringe venue, and as a center for community groups. This former Catholic Apostolic church was designed by Robert Rowand Anderson in 1872 and was built in the "High Victorian" style. Its conservation is top of the agenda for several local heritage groups, as it houses a series of fine Phoebe Anna Traquair murals. As a leading member of the Arts and Crafts movement at the turn of the century, she worked for eight years on these artistic gems; they still retain a freshness and luminosity that is breathtaking. The church was bought by the Mansfield Traquair Trust in 1998.
