The Building Stones of Central Glasgow
Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI) West of Scotland Chapter, G4 0RF
Much of the stone used in the construction and cladding of the buildings in Glasgow was initially quarried in and around Glasgow before improvement in transport brought rock from further afield. This walk will discuss where the rock came from and also the geological age and environment which produced these rocks. Everyone on the tour will receive a booklet describing the walk.
