Maclennan Arch
Maclennan Arch
The Saltmarket Maclennan Arch has had a chequered history. It was moved to its present location 1991-2. It was composed of fragments salvaged from R & J Adam's Glasgow Assembly Rooms of 1792-6 which was demolished around 1890. Fragments were first re-assembled under the direction of John Carrick, city architect, in 1894 and placed in Jail Square; it was then moved in 1922 to Glasgow Green. Having begun to tilt over, it required dismantling, and the opportunity was taken to move it to the present site, opposite William Stark's Courthouse which can be seen through the arch. The arch is Category B Listed.
