Interior of St.George's-Tron Church

Interior of St.George's-Tron Church, Glasgow

This morning I had a successful meeting with a representative of Irish tourism in Glasgow. Following this I decided to indulge in a little architecture photography. Firstly, I went into St. George’s -Tron Church in the centre of Glasgow, a building which has long intrigued me. I was fortunate to be met by a local volunteer who gave me a private tour around this Presbyterian Church which was designed by William Stark and first opened in 1808. In recent times the building has been extensively refurbished and interior re-modelled. As will be evident from the image above and this video clip the interior impresses as crisp, light and clean. I was advised this church is very popular with Sunday attendances totalling around 500 (full capacity). Tron means weighbridge and may point to the historic industrial activity around this area.
