Corrugated iron church

This is an example of a corrugated iron church as built for the United Free Church around 1910. The United Free Church nationally was faced with the problem of providing a church and manse in parishes where the continuing Free Church had been granted ownership of the buildings. The United Free Church purchased prefabricated corrugated iron churches, which could be erected in a short time, from R. R. Speirs of Glasgow. They specialised in such buildings, and between 1908 and 1914 manufactured around 75 for use as churches
