St Fillan's, 1925

A scene of what is apparently known as Abbotsfield, but probably rather more familiar to locals as St Fillan's by regard to the adjacent church, in Houston, Renfrewshire from 1925. Few of the familiar features: the police house, the beloved roundabout or the whitewashed walls which the church now sports are evident, but the original walls at the roadside remain almost untouched. It is also pleasant to see the various trees which now stand, or at least their close ancestors, back in their prime.

Greetings of the season to all.
