Gargoyle, Belfast
Gargoyle, Belfast
A gargoyle on the south western side of the tower of Belmont Presbyterian church. The tower, by Vincent Craig, dates from 1900. It might be worth mentioning that, when the tower was added, the church was surrounded by suburban villas and not the semis of today.
Belmont Presbyterian church, Belfast
Belmont Presbyterian church, at the corner of Sydenham Avenue and Norwood Drive, was built in 1860/61 to a design by WJ Barre. The tower and nave were added in 1898/1900.
