Paisley , large burgh town and industrial centre, Renfrewshire council area and historic county, west-central Scotland , 7 miles 11 km west of Glasgow. Paisley developed as a village clustered around a Cluniac abbey founded in The original abbey was burned down in , and the present building dates from the 15th century. By the early 18th century Paisley had developed into a manufacturing centre for the hand-loom weaving of linen. At the end of the century the new town was laid out over much of the ground that once belonged to the abbey.
Located in the west central Lowlands , it is one of three council areas contained within the boundaries of the historic county of Renfrewshire , the others being East Renfrewshire to the east and Inverclyde to the west. The term Renfrewshire may also be used to refer to the historic county, also known as the County of Renfrew or Greater Renfrewshire, with origins in the 16th century. The larger Renfrewshire, containing Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and East Renfrewshire, remains in use as a registration county and lieutenancy area as well as a joint valuation board area for electoral registration and local tax valuation purposes. The town of Paisley is the area's main settlement and centre of local government and contains the historic county town , the royal burgh of Renfrew. The name of Renfrewshire derives from its county town, Renfrew , which has been attested since the Roman occupation of Britain. This suggests a point of land near the flow of water, such as at the confluence of the Cart and Clyde rivers. Previously this had formed part of the county of Lanarkshire.
Located on the northern edge of the Gleniffer Braes , the town borders the city of Glasgow to the east, and straddles the banks of the White Cart Water , a tributary of the River Clyde. It serves as the administrative centre for the Renfrewshire council area , and is the largest town in the historic county of the same name. Paisley is often cited as "Scotland's largest town" and is the fifth largest settlement in the country , although it does not have city status. The town became prominent in the 12th century, with the establishment of Paisley Abbey , an important religious hub which formerly had control over other local churches. By the 19th century, Paisley was a centre of the weaving industry, giving its name to the Paisley shawl and the Paisley Pattern.
Renfrewshire , also called Renfrew , council area and historic county, west-central Scotland , stretching along the south bank of the River Clyde in the north and along the shore of the Firth of Clyde in the west. It encompasses largely urbanized lowlands along the River Clyde and hills in the south and west. The council area lies entirely within the historic county of the same name, which covers a much larger area including the council areas of Inverclyde and East Renfrewshire. The Romans built forts at Bishopton and near Greenock to prevent the outflanking of the Antonine Wall. After the Romans retired , the Cumbrian Britons who inhabited Renfrewshire and the surrounding area formed the kingdom of Strathclyde , extending from the River Derwent in Cumberland to the Clyde.
