Glasgow's Southern Necropolis in Winter

Monday, January 04, 2010

Today, the big freeze continued. This is proving the coldest winter in Britain since 1981.

Because of time constraints, aggravated by the weather, I took the soft option and went off by car to explore Glasgow's Southern Necropolis which contains the remains of some 250,000 people.

The paths in the Necropolis were hard packed snow and very treacherous. However, I managed to follow most of the Heritage Trail which entails the memorials to some of the more celebrated of the deceased, covering about half the 31 in the official Trail. These are detailed below.
