The Triple Kirks
The Triple Kirks was a group of three churches sharing a common spire. It was designed by Archibald Simpson under the combined commission of Free Church adherents of the East, West and South Churches of Aberdeen. Building commenced within a month of the Disruption of May 1843.

Funds were limited so cheap materials were employed. The church is primarily composed of brick and Dundee sandstone. The cost of the churches was £5,300. The East Church opened on 31st December 1843, the South on 11th January 1844 and the West on 28th of that month.
