History of Speirs Wharf, Glasgow

Speirs Wharf holds a rich industrial heritage centred around the Forth & Clyde Canal. Established in the late 18th century, the Forth & Clyde Canal was a major success story in Glasgow's history.

By the mid-19th century, the canal had stimulated industrial development all along its banks, and this was particularly true of the area around Speirs Wharf and Port Dundas.

A landmark of Speirs Wharf is the former City of Glasgow Grain Mills and Stores complex. Constructed for John Currie & Co. circa 1851, the mills represented a major industrial investment.

In 1989, the buildings were converted into residential apartments, a private leisure centre and commercial units.

Today, Speirs Wharf offers a compelling blend of historical architecture and modern amenities, preserving its industrial legacy while providing a desirable living environment.
