Lambhill StablesA community hub and social enterprise for North Glasgow, Lambhill Stables was set up in 2007 with the aim of providing recreational, occupational, training and employment opportunities.
The derelict former stables building, a staging post in the days when horses pulled barges along the Forth and Clyde Canal, was brought into community ownership.
We partner with Lambhill Stables to deliver classes which will bring to life the forgotten stories of the communities, industries and wildlife living and working alongside the Forth and Clyde Canal.
Lambhill Stables & Industry Boat Tour
Come along and explore the history of Lambhill Stables, the building itself, the reason for its existence, its changing functions over the years and the services it provides for the local community now. You will then board the Lambhill Stables open-top boat at the pontoon beside the Stables building and take a heritage boat trip via Stockingfield Junction to Applecross.
You will learn about the changing functions of travel on the Forth and Clyde Canal and about the changing face of industry in the area.
