This evening, I am posting a short video clip of my visit to the Rose Garden at Gorbals. This is an unusual place and in fact is a small park in the centre of the re-developed Gorbals residential area.

It would appear that the Rose Garden was a former churchyard and/or cemetery. Around the walls of the Garden can be found tombstones and grave-markers to the deceased dating back to the 18th and early 19th centuries when the Gorbals was an upscale residential location.

The Gorbals is a fascinating area presenting a combination of heritage properties ( e.g.Caledonia Road Church) and modern architecture all just a mile or so from Glasgow City.
