Strathbungo: ‘the gem’ of Glasgow’s Southside
Strathbungo has been a Conservation Area for nearly 50 years. Its planned grid of elegant townhouses, including Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson’s famous 1-10 Moray Place, was once the home of Glasgow architects - Thomson himself, Charles Rennie Mackintosh and H.E. Clifford - as well as small businessmen and clergy. Now it is the fashionable centre of a thriving creative community. Local resident Andrew Greg takes you on a tour of these narrow leafy streets. He will describe the history of the original village, once on the edge of Victorian Glasgow’s burgeoning growth. You will meander through the formal plan and discover the subtle changes in architectural design from the 1860s to the 1930s and the hidden clues to now lost features of the streetscape.
