Cathedral Square, Glasgow, Glasgow
Cathedral Square, Glasgow, Glasgow Cathedral Square is a public square in the city of Glasgow, Scotland. Cathedral Square and precinct is situated adjacent to Glasgow Cathedral on High Street/Castle Street at John Knox Street. Nearby are many famous Glasgow Landmarks such as Provand's Lordship, Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Necropolis, the ceremonial Barony Hall of Strathclyde University, and the Glasgow Evangelical Church at the Square. It is one of six public squares and precincts in the city centre.Prior to the 1870s the post-medieval clutter of congested dwellings and workshops, on the remaining debris of the long-gone Bishop's Castle, where Castle Street is today, hampered access to the Infirmary, with its small Infirmary Square, and Cathedral. The new City Improvement Trust, under architect and city superintendent John Carrick, started to clear the hovels near Glasgow Cross and erect new tenements up the High Street and Castle Street. A new road was fully opened, John Knox Street, curving its way past the Necropolis entrances, covering over the Molendinar Burn, and down to Duke Street, close to Wellpark Brewery at the Drygate. Cathedral Square Gardens opened in 1879, formed by John Carrick and landscaped by Duncan McMillan. In 1890 a decorative fountain, the Steven Fountain, was placed in the centre., the same year as the Doulton Fountain in Glasgow Green. As well as being a restful place the square has been used for political gatherings.BUILDINGS of the area Prominent buildings of the area include: Glasgow Evangelical Church, 1880, Category A listed building with its elegant Italian facade and handsome classical interiors designed by architect John Honeyman of Honeyman and Keppie, as Cathedral Square United Presbyterian/Barony North ChurchDischarged Prisoners Aid Society (now Cathedral House Hotel), 1896, red sandstoned building designed by architects Campbell Douglas and MorisonBarony Hall, 1889, category A listed red sandstoned building designed by Sir John James Burnet., as the New Barony Church, with its interior loosely modelled on Gerona Cathedral.
