Dr. Daniel Wilson, with the aid of the architect P. Hamilton, whose drawings and plans of Coldingham Church were used to illustrate Dr. Wilson's points, discursed on the subject of Coldingham Priory's architectural features. Several details suggested to Dr. Wilson that the building could be considered an extremely early example of the First Pointed style of Gothic architecture. By comparison with several other Scottish churches of the same period, he showed clearly that evidence of the church's association with Durham could be found even in its architectural features.
Meetings minutes for June 14, 1852 are appended.
