Northlight Heritage worked closely with our colleagues in The Jorvik Group to improve the display and interpretation of the 31 medieval sculptured stones held in Govan Old Parish Church. The project aimed to raise the profile of the stones and to engage, educate and entertain a wide audience of local, national and international visitors. It will also serve as a pilot for a more ambitious redisplay, as part of a larger initiative to create a dynamic cultural and spiritual centre in Govan. We designed the website and, working closely with colleagues in The Jorvik Group interpretation team, helped produce promotional material, display panels, interpretative trails and a schools pack. We also contributed to the graveyard survey to inform the development of the conservation plan.
