Architect of the Hippodrome (1911), Matthew Steele has a lasting legacy in the streets of Bo'ness. His practice lasted from 1905-37 and in that time he created 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 guide you through Bo'ness to discover the buildings created by this influential architect.

 Part of our 10th-anniversary celebrations celebrating the life and work of prominent Bo'ness architect Matthew Steele.
