Tuesday 5th June - Maryhill Walk (7pm)

Combining work by many of Glasgow’s leading architects, including Mackintosh, with housing from all eras from Victorian to post war, Maryhill retains a distinctive community identity and some of Glasgow’s best-kept historical secrets – including the Maryhill Burgh Halls, re-opening later in 2011.  This varied walk, led by Gordon Barr of Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust, will take in Maryhill itself, the canal that made the area, and a selection of landmark buildings, stained glass and artwork – some of which no longer exist.
