St Ninians Chapel

GPA Humphries

Category A listed and dating from 1755, this earliest surviving post reformation Catholic Church in Scotland is of great significance. Previous 'renovations' had left the church with a comprehensively failing cement render, decaying doors and windows and a failing roof. Our works initially included investigation works into the render and stonework condition, structural investigations, attempts to source possible alternative new slates for the roof and preparing a specification for the overall works. Thereafter grant funding from Historic Scotland and the Heritage Lottery fund was sought and obtained. The overall works encompassed major roof repairs, structural repairs, stonework pointing and repairs, re-harling, window repairs, refinishing windows and doors to their previous colours and slabbing works to the perimeter to prevent water damage to the foundations. This modest gem of a building is now in a fit condition to serve its congregation properly and be appreciated into the future.
