Church History

Located off Dumbarton Road, in Whitecrook (now demolished).

This was the first church in Clydebank, but the church is now demolished. Along with the nearby St Cuthbert's, it became the basis for the present-day Clydebank Waterfront  (Abbotsford) church which also absorbed its former Abbotsford namesake, amongst others.

St James was located in the area of Whitecrook, near the present-day A814 Glasgow Road/Dumbarton Road and just north-east from Cunard Street, not far from the former John Brown's shipyard and its preserved Titan crane. See the National Library of Scotland map for Dumbartonshire, Sheet n023.15 - 25 inch Map.
