The Gatehouse at 50 Cathedral Square, originally known as the Superintendent’s House, is a Category A listed building which dates from the mid-late 19th century.
It forms part of the ‘grand processional way’, from Cathedral Square to the Necropolis which was designed by Glaswegian architects, James Hamilton (the partner of his father David). The Gatehouse has been on the Buildings at Risk Register since November 2010, shortly after the last park ‘superintendent’ moved out and the building has remained vacant and derelict since.
The project is to repair and rehabilitate the building to create a base for The Society of Friends of Glasgow Cathedral (The Friends) and establish a welcoming and widely accessible place for local people and visitors to learn about and engage with the heritage of the Gatehouse, the Cathedral and their wider surroundings.
