Good day everyone,
I hope you are all still in good health and that you are having a fabulous day.
Today we are back in Dundee again. After we visited the RRS Discovery, we drove to the Magdalen Bandstand.
In 1890 they built The Magdalen Bandstand in one of the oldest parks in Dundee, the Magdalene Green Park. The bandstand became an icon of Dundee. On Summer Sundays, you can enjoy live music from the bandstand.
Views of the Tay rail bridge are on the left of the bandstand on the other side of the Tay River, the Fife Skyline.
Between 1869 to 1870, the McCheyne Memorial Church; was erected on Perth Road. a Muscular Gothic Church with Steeple. The architect of this magnificent church was Frederick Thomas Pilkington.
On 20 September 1999, The Dundee Courier reports that the church’s congregation is to merge with that of Roseangle Ryehill and, the church is to close.
Before closure in 1999, also known as St Peters McCheyne Church, having combined with St Peters Church, which celebrated evangelist Rev Robert Murray McCheyne preached from 1836-43.
The church of Scotland sold the church to a private individual in December 2000.
I have been looking for information on the Blackness Community Library, but did not have much luck. It is such a beautiful building. It is shame that there are not more information on it. Not sure if the name changed and that I am looking in the wrong places. Google was not much help.
Up the road from the Blackness Community Library is the Logie & St. John’s (Cross) Church. Another beautiful building.
On our way to Dundee Law I saw this beautiful church on the left of the road. The streets are so narrow I had to park in the driveway of one of the house just to take a few photos of this beautiful church.
Thank you very much for taking the time to join me on my travels. I hope you enjoyed it just as much as I did.
Till next time, safe travels and keep dreaming.
Have a fabulous day.
