Designating St Kane's Hall, New Deer

Closed 12 Jun 2024

Opened 22 May 2024


We propose to designate St Kane's Hall, Main Street, New Deer, Turriff as a listed building.

St Kane’s Hall, built between 1884 and 1885, is a former Free Church (now in use as a school hall/gymnasium) in the village of New Deer. It was designed by the well-known Aberdeen-based architects Ellis & Wilson in the Early Gothic style. St Kane’s Hall has special architectural and historic interest as a good example of a Gothic church in a small rural village, which is little altered to the exterior. The church is prominently situated along the Main Street.

We are now gathering views on our proposal to list this building at category C.
