About Looking Up and Looking Out for Tenements: Southside

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.

Camphill Gate Tenement is a listed historic tenement building built on the site of the old Crossmyloof Bakery in the Southside of the city. The ‘Looking Up & Looking Up’ tour will explore the common spaces of Camphill Gate, as well as gaining access to the communal roof space, where we will get amongst the chimney pots and experience a bird’s eye view of the surrounding area.

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: Southside are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
