15 October 2018:  At the end of June, a 'Treacle' Bible was stolen from The Old Kirk in Kirkmaiden, Drummore, Scotland, a very small farming community, where it has been for over 400 years. 

Copy specific information: it has a black cover  and is lacking leaves at the start of Genesis and last part of Revelation. It dates from 1574, and is about 14 inches by 12.

The “Treacle Bible” derives from the reading of Jeremiah CH8 V22, other Bibles read “balm in Giliad” but this one says “Treacle in Gilead”

The crime number is PDG0134780168 and any information can go to Stranraer Police on + 44 1786 289070, or alternatively please contact Eilish Paterson
