HOW WE HELPED

Saint Vincent Street Church was placed on the Watch in 1998, 2004 and, 2006. WMF subsequently contributed to the restoration of the church tower, which is a prominent architectural feature characteristic of Thomson’s style. The tower is an enduring feature of Glasgow’s skyline, as it is visible from many areas of the city.
