Volunteers needed for a cruise down the history of canal

Lambhill Stables, in North Glasgow, has received £80,000 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) for an exciting project called ‘Coal, Cottages and Canals’.

The project aims to bring to life the forgotten stories of the communities that lived alongside the Forth and Clyde Canal between Farm Bridge, Bishopbriggs, and Lambhill, from the opening of the canal to the present day.

The object is to foster awareness of the significance of the Lambhill area’s history, through the involvement of at least 40 volunteers of all ages.

They are looking for people with an interest in the history of this area to get involved and will provide training in everything from research skills to how to guide historic walking tours.

If you’d like more information about the project, and to find out how to get involved, please contact Maggie MacBean Orr, Heritage Co-ordinator, on 0141 945 4100 or email maggie@lambhillstables.org
