The former stables in the north of Glasgow was built around 1815 as a staging post in the days when horses pulled boats and barges along the Forth and Clyde Canal. These days you’re as likely to see kingfishers and swans along the canal than boats; and horses, hardly at all.
But Lambhill itself has a long and proud history. We’ve witnessed and welcomed all comers, from miners to meteorites, from the birth of the Industrial Revolution and the growth of Glasgow as a major economic centre, to the advance guard of the Roman Empire at its northernmost extent along the Antonine Wall.
Lambhill is particularly well-placed to investigate the astonishing diversity of our natural and built environment.
