Templeton's Carpet Factory was designed in the style of grand Italian palazzos. It did make carpets but nowadays it is home to various businesses. It is close to Glasgow Green and is worth a visit to admire its architecture.

A quite astonishing Victorian factory building which was modelled on the Doge's Palace in Venice to ensure a successful passage through it's planning approval process. However carpets have not been made here for decades and it correctly known now as the Templeton Business Centre. After...More
