Ayr - Tower of Holy Trinity

The foundation stone of the current Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Ayr was laid in 1887 and the new church opened in 1888; this on the site of the church originally opened in 1839.

The design was by John Loughborough Pearson, RA, who designed mainly in England. His original ideas for a tower and spire (almost certainly very tall and very sharp) were not followed up and the current tower and 'spire' was added in 1964, 76 years after the church opened.
