The Gatehouse

Community Space, Conservation & Retrofit, Sport & Tourism

We are working with Glasgow Building Preservation Trust to repair and rehabilitate this vacant and derelict villa dating from the mid-late 19th century. It forms part of the ‘grand processional way’ from Cathedral Square to the Necropolis which was designed by Glaswegian architect James Hamilton.

The aim is to create a base for The Society of Friends of Glasgow Cathedral (The Friends) and establish a welcoming and accessible place for people to learn about the heritage of the gatehouse, Glasgow Cathedral and the wider surroundings.
