Dumbarton West Kirk :: Shared Description

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.
