Baptist Cathedral of Europe Paisley Scotland

Thursday, May 07, 2009

This afternoon, I am posting a video clip of the Coats Memorial Church at High Street, Paisley. This was taken within the past 24 hours.

This building dates back about 100 years and was built with wealth generated through the then prosperous textile industry for which Paisley was famous. The Coats family were key drivers in the Paisley textile industries.

The building is of red sandstone and of Gothic design.The spire rises to a height of 60 metres above ground level.

The building is open to the public on Friday afternoons. The interior is equally impressive, containing wood carvings, marble, alabaster and mosaics.

The video should be viewed in context of the rain in process at the time, not unusual for West of Scotland!
