Troon Old Parish Church, Ayr Street, Troon, Ayrshire KA10 6EB

UKNIWM; Not Listed
OS Grid Ref: NS 320309



The memorial stone of the new Parish Church was laid on Saturday, 28th October 1893 by the Duke and Duchess of Portland. Some three years afterwards the church was completed and on the 26th December 1895 was dedicated to the public worship of God. The church itself is an example of Gothic architecture of the 12th century, built from designs by Mr. H.J. Blanc. The plan of the church is of cruciform outline. The local paper sums up thus- “looked at from any point of view, either in the interior or outside, the Church is a thing of beauty, and barring accident should be a joy for centuries to the people of the district.
For further information on the church log onto: www.troonold.org.uk

Within the church there is a brass plaque and two stained glass windows dedicated to the church members who fell in the WW1.



The stained glass windows are inscribed as follows:

"Be Thou Faithful Unto Death" and "I Will Give Thee A Crown Of Life"
