Across from the church is a house called Provand's Lordship. This is the oldest house in Glasgow, being over 500 years old. It was one of 40 ecclesiastical buildings around the Cathedral. Some of the building dates to the 1600's and more of it's history is still being discovered. This manse was a residence of one of the Canons who presided over the Cathedrals business.
