Wellington Church, Glasgow, Scotland
This evening, I am focusing on Wellington Church which is located in the Hillhead district of Glasgow, opposite Glasgow University.
This church serves a Church of Scotland, Presbyterian congregation. The impressive exterior architecture comprises a neoclassical portico with colonnade and Corinthian columns imitating and ancient Greek temple. The church was constructed 1883-4 with the architecture reflecting the style of the United Presbyterian Church (which merged with the Church of Scotland in 1929). The architect was Thomas Lennox Watson (1850-1920).

Millbrae Crescent, Glasgow, Scotland
This evening, I am continuing with my Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson theme of recent days.
This post focuses on 2-38 Millbrae Crescent, near Langside in Glasgow and dates from 1876-77. Thomson died in 1875 but it is believed that Thomson’s last professional partner, Robert Turnbull, completed the work using Thomson’s design. The Crescent architecture has been described as combining the style of rustic villas with the sublime urbanity of the terrace.
