Old Parish Church Hamilton, Strathmore Road, Hamilton ML3 6AQ

OS Grid Ref: NS 722554



The present building is a Georgian gem. The only church designed and built by William Adam, 1734. Samples from the roof timbers found to be full of lead shot Adam used wood from an old man-of-war! Chancel furnishings include embroidery by Hannah Frew Paterson. Exceptionally detailed engraved glass windows by Anita Pate depict the history of the church back to the 6th century. Memorial stained glass window of African animals to John Stevenson Hamilton, founder of Kruger National Park. Eleventh-century Netherton Cross and Covenanting memorials in graveyard.

There are two 1914-1919 war memorials. I take it one has come from another church at some point ?

The smaller Memorial may have come from Auchingramont Church, now flats, which amalgamated with the Old Parish Church in 1980.

Based only on my home town's church memorials, the smaller memorial with several officers on it may be from the then established Church of Scotland and the larger memorial from the then United Free Church.
