About Looking Up and Looking Out for Tenements: Garnethill

An Explorative Tour of Common Repairs and Shared Responsibilities

In the run up to National Maintenance Week Glasgow City Heritage Trust in collaboration with Under One Roof invite you to become a tenement detective for the day as we send you on an investigative walk around some of Glasgow’s traditional buildings in search of common issues and potential repairs.

With binoculars and inspections mirrors in tow we will explore the buildings around us, recording any findings as we go.

Throughout the afternoon we will hear from property specialists about your rights and responsibilities when living in buildings with multiple owners, and be inspired by community initiatives taking place in your local area that are bringing people together in order to care for shared spaces and increase local pride.

Garnethill is a predominately residential area located in the city centre of Glasgow. The ‘Looking Up & Looking Up’ tour will explore the late Georgian and Early Victorian tenements from the streets which surround the Garnethill Multicultural Centre.

All surveying and recording tools provided.

Refreshments provided.

As we will be outdoors at various points throughout the afternoon, please ensure you bring along appropriate clothing.

Join us for part, or all, of the afternoon. Check the schedule for each afternoon and pop in when it suits you!

These events are free, no booking required.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Looking Up and Looking Out for Tenements: Garnethill are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
