Eight churches share £1m bounty
April 2 2010
Amongst the places of worship to benefit is Renfrew Old Parish Church which boasts a “dedicated pew” where Queen Victoria would sit when visiting Lord Blythswood.
Renfrew’s share of the jackpot, £260k, will be spent rebuilding the churches notably tall and slender stone steeple whilst the roof is re-slated and damaged masonry and open joints repaired.
Less grandiose but of no less historical value is the “tin tabernacle” of St Fillans Episcopal Church. Constructed from corrugated iron by the 7th Marquis of Breadalbane it boasts an attractive timber interior.
St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral in Bridgeton will receive essential repairs to its west gable and bell tower.
