Maryhill Burgh Halls
Café open, event bookings & Free Tours available!
Work has been going on to breathe new life into the former Burgh Halls complex at the heart of Maryhill.
The Halls and adjoining former Police Station were purchased by Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust in November 2009, and work started immediately on an ambitious programme of building work.
The restored Halls recaptures the splendid historic beauty of this treasured building, and now provides the local community with a modern public hall, a cafe and heritage exhibition space, 11 offices, a commercial and community recording studio, nursery, and meeting rooms, all situated around an outdoor courtyard.
More than 7 years hard work has been put into developing the proposals for the project, and raising over £9 million that was needed to bring it back to life. The Board of the Trust comprises local people and representatives from partners Maryhill Housing Association, Cube Housing Association, and Glasgow City Council.
The building's architectural appeal and historic merit is further enhanced by a unique series of twenty stained glass panels depicting the various trades and industries of Maryhill in the late 19th century. They were designed and manufactured by Stephen Adam, one of the foremost stained glass artists of the time. The panels have been held in storage by Glasgow Museums, and the building restoration has allowed a number of them to be conserved and returned to the building.
We've also unveiled ten brand new stained glass windows to represent modern Maryhill, designed thanks to the input and ideas of over 200 local people.
