Originally listed with St Andrew?s Church and 8a Pier Place. Disused in 1977, the building has since been converted into a private residence and is now a separate entity. When awarded the commission to build
St Andrews? vestry and its halls and spire to Pier Place, William Flockhart (1854-1913) was working independently (having worked in partnership with William Wallace between 1879-81). Educated and based in London, Flockhart studied in Paris in 1878.
