Tundergarth Church is situated in the
hills just under 3 miles southeast of
The church was built in 1770, and may have
been rebuilt in 1900.
The church is best known today as the site
of the Pan Am 103 aircraft crash on the 21st
December 1988, that led to the death of all
243 passengers and 16 crew.
The nose cone of the Jumbo Jet was found
in a field a few hundred yards north of the
church. Much of the plane fuselage and
passengers were recovered between the church
and Lockerbie Golf Club, 3 miles north.
Both wings of the plane hit Sherwood
Crescent in Lockerbie destroying a number of
houses, killing 11 people. The area where the
houses were, now has a memorial garden.
The small building next to the church
holds the Pan Am 103 Book of Remembrance.
The Lockerbie Garden of Remembrance is
situated in Dryfesdale Cemetery, just under 1
mile west of Lockerbie. Web Page with
