Glenfield

Glenfield

Our school is built on the site of Glenfield Frith Hall, a huge estate that dominated the Glenfield area until the early part of the twentieth century.

This fascinating map (produced by the National Library of Scotland) compares, side-by-side, the site of our school today with the Glenfield of c1888-1913. As you move the pointer on one map, it will show you the corresponding location on the other map.

You can zoom in and out and search other parts of Glenfield. It is very evident just how much Glenfield has developed in the last 100 years!

There is evidence on the older map of the air shafts which ventilated Glenfield Tunnel. Some of these tunnel shafts remain. If you would like to see them for yourselves, you could have a go at the Glenfield History Trail. Here is a copy of the map and relevant information:

Alternatively, a digital version is available here:

There are two trails: one to help you to discover the tunnel shafts and the second is of the listed buildings and monuments in the village centre.
