Hangingshaw is a housing estate in the south side of Glasgow. It is bordered to the south by Kingspark, to the west by Mount Florida, esat by Bankhead and to the north by Toryglen. The southern part of the estate was built during the inter war period with cottage flats and semi detached homes built. These were typical of their time as many similar dwellings were erected in larger estates like Knightswood and Carntyne. The northern part was developed in the 1960s and contains terraced dwellings and tenement properties.
