Barony Hall, Glasgow, Scotland
Date built: 1889 ; conversion 1990
Design: J J Burnet & J A Campbell
Barony Hall, also known as Barony Church, is a red sandstone Victorian Gothic church located on Castle Street in Glasgow, Scotland, near the Glasgow Cathedral and the Glasgow Royal Infirmary. Together with the Glasgow Cathedral and oldest surviving house, Provand’s Lordship, which are both near Glasgow’s historical High Street, Barony Hall establishes its place as a city’s heritage and a fine example of Gothic architecture. The Old Barony Church was built as a part of the Barony Parish in Glasgow by architect, James Adams. It opened in 1799 and served ceremonial and other congregational purposes.
The replacement for the old building was completed in 1889: it incorporated architectural artifacts from the old church and a number of other relics.
