Rose Garden, Gorbals, Glasgow, Scotland.

This evening, I am posting information on the Rose Garden in the Gorbals district of Glasgow, Scotland. 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.
