Paisley High Kirk :: Shared Description

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.
