About Former Trinity North Church of Scotland and Church Halls

On the corner with East Bowmont Street, is the former Trinity North Church designed and built between 1885-6 by the Edinburgh architect John Starforth. This was built on the site of an earlier 1788 church. Notice the rich Gothic detailing, especially on the spire.
Looking over the car park on your left, you will see the Red Lion in Jamieson's Entry. Although mentioned in a list of traders of 1826, the present building dates from 1905.The building has traditional details such as crowstep gables and corner turret and the ground floor windows are interesting as the Art Nouveau movement has clearly influenced them.
