United Presbyterian Church

Glimpsed from passing cars and buses by generations of Glaswegians Alexander "Greek" Thomsons UP church in the Gorbals has always been an intriguing building. Gutted by fire in 1965 and correctly on the building at risk register , it has sat isolated and apparently abandoned on its triangular island.
Recently a group of architectural students ( RE:Dwell ) and involvement from New Gorbals Housing Association and Lateral North have allowed the gates to be opened for events and let people in to see what is left.
Also got to speak to the person who has been painting the strange tag around the area for years. You will know the tag.
