January Light: churches

Two churches in Glasgow’s West End, both with spectacular floodlight. Above, Wellington Church (Thomas Lennox Watson, 1883-4) with its splendid Corinthian columns. Below, Kelvinside Hillhead Parish Church (James Sellar, 1876) modelled on the Sainte-Chapelle in Paris.

Linked to Becky’s January Squares challenge – words ending in light.


  1. I have to say, I do think old churches are beautiful. New ones, not so much. I drive past a brand-new church every time I go to the animal shelter, and it is truly one of the ugliest buildings I’ve ever seen: grey and orange metal with very few windows. It looks like a huge warehouse!
