Liberton Kirk has over 16,000 poppies on its exterior as it marks the Centenary of the Armistice at the end of the First World War.

Around 16,000 poppies have been made by people ranging in age from 3 to 96, and from as far afield as New Zealand and Australia. Skilled embroiderers, craftsmen and unskilled people have contributed poppies made from wood, copper, plastic, wool, felt and all sorts of other materials.

They will mostly be displayed on the church building and tower from Sunday October 21st to Sunday November 18th 2018.

It really is stunning to see in person, so try to visit before November 18th.
