This morning I am enjoying spring sunshine. Image shows Paisley Abbey. Apologies for quality of image, which was posted direct from cellphone.

Paisley is something of a ‘hidden gem’ overshadowed by near neighbour, Glasgow. To the right of the image is Paisley Abbey which was founded in 1163. The religious site was originally a priory which became an Abbey answerable to Rome in 1245. It is believed that William Wallace aka ‘Braveheart’ was educated there.

The building to left of the image is Paisley Town Hall, a very grand Victorian building reflecting the wealth of the town which was built on textiles and thread making.
