Columns and Spires

Wellpark Mid Kirk Church in Cathcart Square in one of Greenock's oldest churches.

It was opened in 1761 and is still used for worship today by a Church of Scotland congregation (Presbyterian).  The spire was added in 1787 and is 140 feet high.  This shows the detail of a column at the front of the church.

Greenock's Municipal Buildings are just across the street and this is a view of the Victoria Tower from the church porch.

Joining InSPIREd Sunday - come and have a look at some other churches from all over the world.

  1. Those are wonderful detail shots of the column. :-)

    «Louis» has a post about Grace Cathedral, San Francisco and includes the musical odyssey of the Third Mode Theme of Thomas Tallis from chant tone to hymn to fantasia.

  2. What wonderful architecture on both buildings. It really was built to last.
