The Auld West Kirk, Greenock

This church was the first Presbyterian Church built in Scotland following the reformation, it was first open in 1591. In 1841 it was closed when the congregation moved to a New West Kirk in 1841. The Church lay derelict until 1864 when it was heavily restored and re-opened, the tower and stained glass windows were added. In 1917 the shipyard Harland & Wolf wanted to increase the size of their yard and offered to move the church building to where it stands today on the esplanade.
