Description

A view of Scots Presbyterian Church in Fremantle, Western Australia. The church was designed by Perth architect Sir J. J. Talbot Hobbs (1864-1938) and built by Petrie & Sons in 1890. It is a gothic style church constructed from limestone with decorative red brick quoins on the buttresses. Voussoirs around the yellow doors and the numerous lancet windows are also in distinctive red brick. The large square tower with an octagonal steeple is another dominant feature of the church’s neo-gothic architecture.

Scots Presbyterian Church is one of only six Presbyterian churches remaining in Western Australia after the congregation refused to amalgamate with the Uniting Church in 1977. It was added to WA’s State Register of Heritage Places in 1999.
