Notes: Grangemouth.—Grange U F Church, which was opened on Friday, is designed in a severe type of Early English Gothic, with very simple detail, and little or no ornament except such as naturally arises from the design. The longest front, in which is the main entrance, faces Grange Bank-road, along which it extends 126ft. A square tower, about 70ft. high, is placed at the north end of this front, and the principal entrance is at the base of this tower. Internally the church is divided into nave and side aisles by an arcade of three pointed arches on each side. At the pulpit end an arch of wide span divides the church from the organ-chamber, which is continued beyond the church. The ceiling is semi-octagonal in form, divided into bays by the main couples, and lined with dressed timber. The interior decoration is carried out in subdued tones of soft green and brown tints, relieved by bands of brighter colour. The seating and panelling are stained myrtle green, with the woodwork of pulpit and gallery front in grey oak. The church will seat over 630 persons, and the hall in connection is seated for 400 people. There are also a large session-room, vestry, &c. The cost has been £4,000. The architect is Mr. John B. Wilson, ARIBA, and IA., Glasgow. [Building News 6 November 1903 p636]
