As i intimated a couple of weeks ago, Paisley Abbey is not my favourite building in Paisley. It is a beautiful building that is difficult to take a bad picture of, but it is edged out, in my mind, by the Coats Memorial Church.

Completed in 1894, the church was funded by the Coats family as a memorial to the founder of the J&P Coats company and funder of various projects in Paisley, John Coats. Coats himself passed away in 1883 with construction of the church taking 8 years. It is no longer in use as a church, an appeal in 2019 attempted to raise funds to renovate the church with a view to converting the building to a public venue space. (for more information see here…)

The last pic was the trickiest of the lot to pull off, thanks to a busy road and a group of young adults heading into the castle grounds who I didn’t want in the picture.
