About The Project
Loved and Lost: Govanhill’s Built Heritage project involves the production of a book identifying, investigating and celebrating some of the buildings and businesses in and around Govanhill that have played a significant role in the history of the area, many of which no longer exist while others have been transformed or repurposed for new activities.

At Govanhill Baths, we’re very conscious of the historical significance of our building and in our engagement with the community we’ve consistently encouraged greater awareness of local history, not just of our own building but all the spaces and places that have been an integral part of Govanhill at one time or another. Our book will look at some of the buildings that have shaped the history of this unique area and help celebrate that history.

The publication will be launched as part of a community heritage conference (funding dependent) in August at the Govanhill Book Festival as part of the Govanhill International Festival and Carnival.
