A district of W Glasgow, Shieldhall is located on the south bank of the River Clyde, close to the border between Glasgow City and Renfrewshire, 4 miles (6 km) west of the city centre. Once the site of the mid-17th century Shieldhall House, this was replaced by a manufacturing and production plants for the Scottish Cooperative Wholesale Society from 1887 and in turn by a modern industrial estate in the 1970s. The Art Deco Luma Lightbulb factory (1938) was converted into award-winning flats in 1996, now known as the Luma Tower. A Sewage Works (opened 1910, reconstructed 1980) is located close to the river and the Southern General Hospital is also located here, partially on the site of the former Shieldhall Hospital.
