Dumbarton West Kirk: church halls
Dumbarton West Kirk: church halls
This building dates from 1860; the architect was William Spence. As a church, it was superseded by the present-day NS3975 : Dumbarton West Kirk, the building on the right (see that link for much more information). However, the 1860 building is still in use, serving as church halls for the West Kirk. See NS3975 : Dumbarton West Kirk: church halls for another view.

Both buildings were successors to the original West Bridgend church, which was built in the 1790s.
Dumbarton West Kirk
The present church building opened in 1888, and is the work of Dumbarton's town architect, John McLeod. It replaces William Spence's 1860 church building, which stands immediately to the south of the present church, and which now serves as church halls. The 1860 building, in turn, replaced the original Relief Church at West Bridgend, which was built in 1794, and which stood in the same area. The associated burial ground, now cleared away, also dated from 1794.
