Important Safety Information

Maxwell Mearns Castle Church was built on a rock beside Mearns Castle in the early 1970s. As part of underpinning the building an area was created under the church on the solid rock, this has become known locally as the Caves.

The drop from this area into the woods is a sheer drop and very dangerous.
It is also an echo chamber of sound and the residents below the church can hear if anyone is under the church. Over the last 50 years’ children and teenagers have clambered through the woods or scrambled up the rock face to get to the Caves. However last summer this trend got worse and far more frequent with the neighbours below having to call the police three or four times a day.
The noise, underage drinking and smoking, urinating, graffiti and verbal abuse is unacceptable, and more importantly, those trying to access the caves have been putting themselves in real danger of a fall.
So as a church we had to act. We have now planted bushes and introduced ”nature piling” which has blocked access to the Caves from one side of the woods. The second remedy, suggested by the police, was anti-climb paint. This has now been applied to the rocks below the Caves to inhibit climbing and it also now covers the area directly under the church where individuals congregated.

We ask all who have previously gone to the Caves to stop this and we ask all parents who read this article to make sure their children are aware of the changes we’ve made.
