Notes

This parish is a union of two earlier medieval parishes (Ladykirk and Crosskirk of Westray). Which - if either- of these two sites served as the kirk of the later united medieval parish of Westray is not yet clear, so the NGR given is non-committal, indicating merely the rough centre of Westray.
