John Gibson (architect)
- For others with the same name, see John Gibson (disambiguation)
Gibson was a prominent bank architect at a time when joint-stock banking was an innovation. His 1849 National Bank of Scotland branch in Glasgow led to perhaps his best-known work, the former National Provincial Bank in Bishopsgate, London, designed in 1862. It was listed Grade I in 1950 and is now known as Gibson Hall.
Gibson also designed the Todmorden Town Hall which opened in 1875.
Gibson is responsible for several churches in and around North Wales, but perhaps his most notable church is St. Margaret's in Bodelwyddan, Denbighshire, more popularly known as the Marble Church, Bodelwyddan, consecrated in 1860. The church is a prominent landmark in the lower Vale of Clwyd and is visible for many miles. It lies just off the A55 trunk road.
