1975 Old Parish Church


1975 Old Parish Church wm

Another photo from 43 years ago in 1975. It is of course instantly recognisable as High Blantyre Old Parish Church, a year or so before Rev Jonathan Silcox arrived. The church was in a very rural position then, without the modern housing estates that surround it today.

On the left, between the church and former manse, the large open fields hosted annual fetes and garden events.
