Discover the history of a landmark building and the park project inspired by it.
Roystonhill Spire is the only remaining part of Townhead-Blochairn Parish Church, built 1866 - which featured glass by Cottier and Morris, and sculptures by Mossman. This tour aims to give a flavour of what was one of the most beautifully decorated churches in Scotland, and explains how the Spire was saved to become the centrepiece of a park.
