Caledonia Road Church

Now that it looks like Glasgow's tower blocks are being demolished at the rate of one per month, I thought I'd stop whilst passing through the city to see one of its more intriguing skylines before it disappears for good.

This is the derelict Caledonia Road Church - one of 'Greek' Thomson's ecclesiastical masterpieces, sadly destroyed by fire with just the shell remaining. Surrounded by tower blocks, wasteland, arterial roads and new medium-density housing, this area still has considerable potential for improvement. On a chilly spring day of driving rain and hail interspersed with bursts of glorious sunshine, I was glad to pause my journey for a few minutes to take these photos.
