Placed firmly in its historic context, this charming account of church and village life in a Renfrewshire weaving village, before, during and after the Disruption of the Church of Scotland in 1843 clearly illustrates the symbiosis between the parishioners, their beliefs and their church buildings. Tales of local characters, the role of the major estates and the mill owners, and the division of opinions as the incumbent minister left the church, took half the villagers with him, and built another fifty yards away. The original limited edition is reprinted in facsimile, with the addition of a substantial index of names and places, for the convenience of family and local historians.
