This evening I am presenting some images from the Cathedral and Necropolis, an elevated area where it is believed that Glasgow started life.

Here is an image of the Necropolis with John Knox memorial in the middle distance. The Necropolis ( City of the Dead) is a fascinating place where have been laid to rest the ‘great and good’ of Glasgow during the 19th century. It contains the remains of almost every eminent Glaswegian of its day.


The following images are of Glasgow Cathedral, the only complete medieval cathedral on the Scottish mainland. This was built on the site of St.Mungo‘s original church established AD 543.

Most of the Cathedral dates from the 13th century with completion at end of the 15th century.

The Cathedral is a “must” for the visitor to Glasgow.
