Architect Matthew Steele in Bo’ness


TALK & VIRTUAL TOUR with Geoff Bailey
11:00, 30M (ava 48hrs)

Architect of the Hippodrome (1912), Matthew Steele has a lasting legacy in the streets of Bo’ness. His practice lasted from 1905-37 and in that time he designed many private homes and public buildings in the town, in the Arts and Crafts, and later Art Deco Moderne style. Born in Bo’ness and trained in Edinburgh and Glasgow, Steele worked mainly in Bo’ness throughout his life and his designs are often very recognisable.

Geoff Bailey, Heritage Engagement Officer with Falkirk Community Trust will take to the streets of Bo’ness to guide you through the town to discover the buildings created by this influential architect.

Geoff Bailey is an archaeologist and keeper of local history at Falkirk Community Trust.
