Name and dates

Broomhill Cottage (1840-1968)

Description

Broomhill Cottage, which appeared as a cottage from the north and a stone built two storey two road shed from the east, has been referred to as the booking office for Glebe Street, Glasgow's terminus of the Garnkirk and Glasgow Railway.

However it has also been pointed out that on demolition the stone turned out to be stone sleepers. It may not date from the opening, but perhaps it was associated with the station. As to the purpose of the lower level both engine shed and carriage shed have been mentioned. The cottage site is to the west of Pinkston Road. Glebe Street Works shed was on the east side.

Nothing now remains, its site was in parkland to the west of Pinkston Road / Glebe Street.
