Stobcross

A small district and old estate of W Central Glasgow, Stobcross lies a quarter-mile (0.5 km) southeast of Yorkhill and 1½ miles (2.5 km) west of George Square. Stobcross Wharf was built on the north bank of the River Clyde a short distance to the southwest of the 18th-century mansion Stobcross House (demolished in the 1870s). The wharf became the Queen's Dock and is now the site of the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre. Part of the estate was feued 1720-40 to form the core of the district of Anderston by James Anderson, while another part was feued by a later owner John Orr in the 1750s to form Cranstonhill and a third eastern section feued by his nephew Matthew to form Finnieston in 1768.
