    Pollokshields: The Evolution of the Garden Suburb

    Dates:Thu 16 Jun Location:Pollok House

    A talk by Niall Murphy, Building Grants Officer at Glasgow City Heritage Trust.

    Thursday 16 June 13.00-14.00.

    Details

    Niall will discuss the Victorian garden suburb of Pollokshields which was established in 1849 and which developed over six decades thereafter. It was the vision of the Stirling Maxwell family who owned the land on which the suburb was built.

    The vision was guided by three successive generations of the family, the developers, contractors and clients who realised it and some of the best Glaswegian architects and craftsmen who built it.

    This lecture tells the story of the evolution of Pollokshields and brings it up to date by illustrating the outcomes of the recent charrette in East Pollokshields.

    The talk is Free, but donations are welcome. Due to limited numbers reservation is necessary.

    Please call 0141 616 6410 to book.

A grand country house set in the scenic surroundings of Pollok Country Park and in easy reach of Glasgow City Centre. 

Pollok House was home to the Maxwell family and gives a real taste of upstairs/downstairs life in the 1930s. Above stairs, the lavish family rooms are packed full of period furniture and furnishings. Below stairs the vast servants’ quarters show the realities of running a country house.

Some of the servants’ rooms are now the shop selling books, gifts and food, while the original kitchen is now home to the Edwardian Kitchen.  The below stairs area is free to visit all year round.

A visit to Pollok House can be easily combined with the nearby Burrell Collection and other sites within Pollok Country Park including the old stable courtyard, the walled garden and glasshouses, and the woodland and riverside walks.

Pollok House is currently undergoing some external maintenance which is expected to continue until August 2016.  The property will remain open throughout.

For conservation reasons, some of our paintings including works by El Greco, Goya and Blake have been removed from the house. These works can be viewed by appointment at Glasgow Museums Resource Centre for more information click here.

Pollok House is a popular wedding venue, during functions there may be restricted access to one or two rooms.  If you are concerned about this affecting your enjoyment of Pollok House please call us to check 0141 616 6410.
