History & Heritage Group

Interested in the History of Lambhill?

Then why not join the Lambhill Stables History & Heritage Group?

We are small group of around ten members who meet on a Monday afternoon, fortnightly, from 2pm until 4pm in “The Bothy” at Lambhill Stables.

Over the years we have we have amassed a wealth of information, stories and tales about the social and industrial history of Lambhill and the surrounding area. Our archive includes maps, photographs, census returns, and household items. We have been able to help people, with historical links to the area, trace their family trees, and in return, add to our collection of objects and our archive.

History and Heritage Group at Lambhill Stables

Past projects have included “Coal, Cottages and Canals” funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund, and being part of a canal side tableau produced by The National Theatre of Scotland recounting the story of the “Annie” and the families living in the miners row at Lochfaulds affectionately known as the “Shangie”.

Most recently we have worked with the Antonine Wall Society to produce the leaflet “Romans in Lambhill” and a mural of Roman life. We have also updated an historical walking trail leaflet and collaborated with Glasgow Life Open Museum to create an outdoor display board depicting the same. It will be displayed outside the Stables building, overlooking the canal.

Whilst we enjoy doing written research and going on the occasional field trip, much of our information has been gathered around the table from people visiting our group.
