Carol Primrose: From Romans to Rabbits - the Cawder Estate: Thursday 6th February 2020

Local historian Carol Primrose will talk on the history of the Cawder Estate, Bishopbriggs. It is currently the home of Cawder Golf Club with Cawder House its clubhouse, but it also includes major artifacts from previous eras such as the Antonine Wall which crosses it and the Forth and Clyde Canal which skirts its southeastern boundary. In the early 1800s, Charles Stirling, owner of the Cawder Estate, commissioned the prolific nineteenth century Scottish architect David Hamilton to improve the estate and redesign Cawder House in the form visible today.
