Oakshaw Trinity Church: shapes in the cobbles
In the foreground, the cobbles contain a heart shape, with a square just behind. A little further ahead, and shown separately, is the outline of a pair of spectacles: NS4864 : Oakshaw Trinity Church: spectacles in the cobbles. See that item for a discussion of the story that has come to be associated with these shapes.

NS4864 : Oakshaw Trinity Church itself is to the photographer's right. The street is called Oakshaw Street East.
Paisley High Kirk
Though known by 2014 as Oakshaw Trinity Church, it was built as the High Kirk, so called because of its location on Church Hill. It was completed by 1754 (a few years after what came to be called, by contrast, the Laigh Kirk). The High Kirk was built to the plans of Bailie John Whyte. A steeple, also to Whyte's plans, was added later (before 1771), and was given a bell in 1776. The High Kirk Parish was disjoined from that of Paisley Abbey in 1782.
