East Hurlet

I was interested to read that East Hurlet House was ravaged by fire in 2006.  I was brought up in this house from 1946 to 1967.  My father sold it in 1969 when my parents moved to the Solway. I recall an article being written on the house which was supposedly the Dower House for the Pollock Estate.  It had been redesigned by Robert Adam in 1768 - there was a downpipe with that date on it.  The house had several Adam fireplaces as well as an Adam arch in the drawing room.  I have a photo of the house which I will try to locate.  The rebuilt house is similar but not the same.

Hi Graeme

Welcome to Urban Glasgow.

Hopefully you will be able to post up your photo. I would really like to see it.

I wonder if the old drain pipe is still in use at the house?
