NS2683 : Rhu War Memorial and Parish Church

taken 11 years ago, near to Rhu, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Rhu War Memorial and Parish Church
Rhu War Memorial and Parish Church
The memorial commemorates the dead of two World Wars. NS2684 : Rhu Parish Church is visible in the background. For a wider view that likewise includes both the memorial and the church, but which provides more context, see NS2683 : Rhu Church. See also NS2684 : Rhu Parish Church (the church is indeed in NS2684, but the war memorial, which I have used as subject, is in NS2683, as was I when taking the picture).

The memorial was designed by the architectural practice A.N.Paterson and Stoddart.

For details of the church itself, see the end-note. Click on the end-note title for other views of the building, and of the various memorials that are to be seen in the kirkyard around the church.
Rhu Parish Church :: NS2684

The present-day church (1851), the third to stand on this site, is by William Spence, with later additions (c.1891) by Honeyman and Keppie; see its listed building report LinkExternal link (at Historic Environment Scotland) for further details. A portion of the wall of the second church (1763) survives in the kirkyard, where it forms part of a memorial to James Buchanan of Craigend Castle.
