Launch of new local history group in Maryhill


Maryhill has a unique heritage amongst the historic burghs surrounding Glasgow. Developing as an industrial area in the 18th century, it became a burgh in 1856 and was independent from Glasgow until 1891, when it was incorporated into the city’s council boundaries. Rather than being associated with one industry, Maryhill was home to several which sprung up during the 18th and 19th century with the opening of the Forth and Clyde canal. As a result, the area was a hive activity and possesses a rich and diverse built and cultural heritage.

The first Maryhill Heritage Group meeting will be held on Thursday 14th January at 5pm until 6pm at Maryhill Burgh Halls. Joining is free and you don’t need to be a local history expert, all you need is curiosity!
