Spot The Spire

If you take a lockdown exercise in Glasgow Necropolis, then look out for the marking “J&G Mossman” on the base of many of the grave monuments.
Mossman & Co were Glasgow’s greatest Victorian-era sculptors, and also made sculpted stone heads for Townhead-Blochairn church – now the Roystonhill Spire.
Some of the very weathered remains of the ‘Mossman heads’ can be found in the Spire Park by the Roystonhill Community Hub
A history project by Rosemount Development Trust will soon install some information boards with photographs of these sculptures, the stained glass and people involved in the history of the church.
More about Mossman can be found at and we also recommend The Friends of Glasgow Necropolis.
