Rosslyn Chapel was built in the 15th century
Rosslyn Chapel, a key location in the Da Vinci Code film, made a profit of more than 500,000 last year, according to new figures.

Visitor numbers soared to an all-time high of 170,000 last year after the blockbuster movie generated massive publicity for the church in Midlothian.

The figures were lodged with Companies House for the Rosslyn Chapel Trust Ltd.

The previous year the charitable trust, formed 11 years ago, made just over 300,000.
