The Church

Every time I cross the Links – the green expanse between Bruntsfield and the Meadows in Edinburgh – Barclay Viewforth Church drags my eyes to look at it.
The excess of the design, the dizzying spire. 


    1. I wonder whether they shared the same architect?

      There are lots of Italianate churches in Edinburgh. They have square bell towers and are light and simple. Quite a contrast to this one and the sheer excess of this one is what attracts and repulses me.
