There are two Polmont Old Parish kirsk in this picture.
The one in the foreground was built in 1734, having been first mooted in 1649, when petitioners sought a church “to be built on a site east of Jinkabout”.
Now, I don’t know the origin of Jinkabout yet, but it still exists in the name of a bridge that crosses the River Avon just beside the oil refinery. I plan to investigate it more.
Anyway, behind that is the more moder, 1844, relacement church. It is rare in that it has two spires at the front – an uncommon feature of church building in the area.
