Statement of Interest

THE DUMBARTON HERALD gives the architect as William Spence of Ardlui, apparently the name of his house in Helensburgh. His office, at this date, was in Glasgow.

Foundation stone laid 12.5.1860.

Built as West Bridgend Church, but superseded 1888 by present church and used since as a hall.
