Paisley Jail/Municiple Buildings
Built in 1818 with castellated turrets and embrasures, the old Paisley County Jail and Municipal Building was the administrative office of Renfrewshire and Paisley

The Old Jail received its first prisoner in 1823, the last man to be in charge of the prison was Governor Bird, whom showed some kindness to his prisoners, when on one occasion he filled and lit two of his prisoner’s tobacco pipes.

Sadly this building over looking the banks of the River Cart can never been seen again, despite local protest in the late 1960’s the building was demolished to make way for the “Piazza” and the River Cart was incarcerated under a concrete slab and the Good Templar Halls with its fine facade was imprisoned by the surrounding “Piazza”
