St Peter's, Cardross: Birth, Death and Renewal


In this landmark book, Diane Watters looks at the history of St Peter's Seminary, Cardross. She traces the story of an architectural failure which morphed into a tragic modernist myth.

This is a historian's account of St Peter's: an exploration of how one of Scotland's most singular buildings became one of its most troubled - and most celebrated.

304 pages, hardback.
