The Trinity Corner
The Trinity Corner, Shiprow, the gateway to the old Hall of the Seven Incorporated Trades. At one time, it was part of the Trinity Monastery. It was purchased in 1631 by Dr. William Guild, who gifted the buildings to the Incorporated Trades to be used as a meeting house and hospital. The Trades had built this fine ornamental gateway with the following inscription: "To ye glorie of God and comfort of the poore this hows was given to the Crafts by Mr. William Guild, Doctour of Divinitie, Minister of Abd: 1633". The buildings were removed when the area was redeveloped in the 1840s but the gateway was built into the Lower Denburn wall of the new Trinity Hall which was opened in Union Street in 1847.
