Kilsyth example offers hope for religious ruins

  • Comment

I was delighted to see in your feature on the restoration of St Patrick's Church, Kilsyth (AJ 12.4.01), that for once someone has decided to care for a Gillespie Kidd & Coia building and not mutilate or destroy it.We all know that these churches have had their share of technical problems over the years but that has never warranted the shabby treatment they received from their supposed guardians. It makes me wonder if the grandest of them all, St Peter's Seminary, Cardross, is doomed just to moulder away as a distressing ruin or whether it too could now be saved for the good of future generations. Surely someone has a viable scheme for its reuse?
