Wilson Memorial Church

As you are probably aware by now, I love Art Deco, so here is the Wilson Memorial Church in Craigentinny, Edinburgh, blipped this morning on my way to Morrisons.

This category B listed building was designed by architect James Stewart Johnston, and is one of the few arts and crafts style churches in the UK. It was completed in 1934, and opened on September 29, 1934. It is a symmetrically fronted church constructed in red brick and banded with painted render. The interior comprises a barrel-roof nave, with many of the original features, including an oak communion table, font, and pulpit. The church is situated in a prominent position within the community of Craigentinny.

Here’s a link to one of my previous blip (11 years ago … eek) with links to more Art Deco gems: https://www.blipfoto.com/entry/1739649

Anyway, it’s a beautiful day here, with no snow like many other parts of the country. 

Have a good weekend, it’s almost here.
