The building we know as Provand’s Lordship is Glasgow’s second oldest building and dates from around 1471.
The building’s name derives from its use as the manse belonging to the clergy of Barlanark or Provan but it is believed to have been built as a manse for the hospital of St Nicholas. Our guide for this visit will be Dr Anthony Lewis, Curator of Scottish History, St Mungo’s Museum of Religious Life & Art (also a member of GAS).
If you wish to join us for our visit please meet at the front door of St Mungo’s Museum of Religious Life & Art (opposite Provand’s Lordship) at 10.15 am. This visit is free of charge but spaces are limited and booking is recommended by contacting our Excursions Convenor.
