Non-Traditional Buildings - Detached Bell Towers

Detached bell towers

Church of Scotland churches were expected to have bells from soon after the Reformation, and most did. In post-war buildings it became fashionable to place bells in detached towers, part of modernist design of church complexes. Often such bell-towers were made of steel, another modernist concept.
