Paisley Abbey Archaeology

The comprehensive historical research for the desk-based assessment allowed targeted archaeological evaluation trenches to be put in place on the footprint of the building and allowed our architectural colleagues to incorporate the archaeological survival within the design process for the new visitor centre.

Place of Paisley

The Place of Paisley is a complex multi-period building adjacent to, and part of, Paisley Abbey. Containing elements from the medieval monastery, with a number of alterations over subsequent centuries (including an extended period in secular ownership) the building is of enormous significance, yet perhaps often overlooked by its immediate neighbour.
