I am writing about the previous location of the Black Bull Inn in Maryhill. It is mentioned on p.27 in the Centenary Record of the Church of the Immaculate Conception 1851-1951 (compiled by Rev. Thomas J Healy). This book says that before the first church was built, Mass was celebrated in a hall in the back of Peters’ Court “which is at the back of the Black Bull Inn”. A 1951 photograph of this location, said to be near Fingal Lane, is shown in the book; one of the elderly buildings shown might be the inn. Looking at an old Ordnance Survey map for 1857-1864, “Peters’ Court” is labelled behind the row of buildings on the other side of Main St (ie Maryhill Rd) across from the first basin in the Maryhill Locks. An “Inn” is one of these buildings. These buildings have now been replaced by post-war flats, but I would judge that the Black Bull Inn, if it is the “Inn” on the map, would have been approximately across the road from the White House Pub, at about 1640 Maryhill Road.
Does anyone have any more information?
