This morning, I paid a visit to Glasgow’s southern Necropolis which is located close to the Gorbals area. Historically (18th century) Gorbals and Hutchesontown was an upscale area and consequently the Necropolis (City of the dead) contains remains of, and memorials to, various wealthy and renowned citizens of its day ranging from literary people to businessmen to engineers and architects. For more information on this fascinating, if somewhat eery, cemetery refer to this web page.

Below is a brief video clip of part of the cemetery which was taken from the main entrance area.
