St Mary of the Angels , also called St. Mary's Church , is a Roman Catholic church building in the Scottish town of Camelon in the Council Area Falkirk . In 1994 the structure was included in the Scottish List of Monuments in the highest category A. The parish has existed since 1923 and consists of around 1500 people. Construction of today's church building began in 1960 and was completed after a year of construction.


The building is located north of Camelon between Glasgow Road ( A803 ) and Brown Street . The design was provided by the well-known architecture firm Gillespie, Kidd & Coia , which planned numerous Roman Catholic church buildings in the Central Lowlands . The elongated building is oriented in a north-south direction. The entrance area is on the west side on Watling Street . The masonry is made of yellow brick . Simple, elongated windows of various sizes are installed irregularly both horizontally and vertically. The building ends with a copper-covered flat roof with two simple dormers. The unadorned cross rises up next to one of the two. The parsonage is adjacent to the church, which is similar in design to the church. A flat brick wall surrounds the site.
