At a number of churches around the Glasgow area, we have carried out a range of restoration works, including building modifications, replacement of large church doors, repairs to stone steps, construction of access ramps, path upgrades, creation of new access paths, building stone work repairs and cleaning of existing stonework.

Working on listed buildings is a regular occurrence within our heritage work, and churches often fall into this category. From repairs and restoration of the building to documentation of the work carried out, we understand the sensitivity required when dealing with older buildings that have significant historical relevance.

The Bridge of Sighs

The Bridge of Sighs was built in 1833 by James Hamilton and was erected to cross the Molendinar Ravine from Cathedral Square to the new Necropolis, the ‘city of the dead’, which was opened on the old Merchants’ Park.

The name given to the Bridge of Sighs refers to the sadness of funeral processions crossing from the Cathedral to the Necropolis

As part of larger works, Covanburn laid granite setts across the bridge and around the Necropolis facade restoring the appearance of this historical site.
