Ruchill Church Halls

Postby Victoriangirl » Mon Oct 19, 2009 12:27 pm

Hi! Do Ruchill Church Halls still exist? According to my ancient copy of Jackie Cooper's Mackintosh Architecture, these were built around 1898 or 1899 (page 32 if you have the 1989 edition). I will be in Glasgow for a few days next week, so checking scottisharchitects.org.uk, multimap.com and the online yellow pages, yes, the church and halls still exists down Shakespeare St. Sending a very polite email to the CRM Society as to whether these are accessable, even to look at from the outside, or not, I get a not-very-nice one back saying no, Queens Cross is the only churchy thing Mackintosh did. Many Thanks for your help. V.G.

Hidden Glasgow sponsored some West End Walks a couple of years back that started from outside here. Here are some photos from that walk

I think the hall is open as a community tea room.
