“A Hidden Jewel”

Govan Old Parish Church
Reviewed May 11, 2012

It is not always the easiest places to find open but a delight when you do get a chance to visit. Some amazing 'hogback' coffin covers that I have ever seen anywhere else.

The parish church is one of the oldest in Scotland dating back to when Govan was a town in its own right. Hogsback burial stones were found in the graveyard and subsequently moved into the church for safekeeping. The history of these fascinating monuments is available in the church. I was met by a very knowledgeable custodian who went out of his way to be helpful. I really enjoyed my visit. This is a poorly advertised attraction which makes it all the more interesting as there are seldom many other visitors. When I was there I watched the filmng of a t.v. show on the church.
