There are now 23 leaflets posted on the

Glasgow City Council website

There are a couple of new booklets available but not yet available on the site. The mist recent is "St Mungo Heritage Trail".

If anyone would like a hard copy of any of the leaflets let me know

I've been to the information centre on George Square and they didn't have many booklets there at all. Where is the best place to go for these?
So far I have Calton, Bridgeton, Victoria and Tollcross Parks, and great walks they all were.

The Mitchell Library has a good selection on Level 2 within the Glasgow Room on the information stand between the door and the enquiry desk.

Partick Library has some of the local west end ones within the reading room

I dare say other libraries around the city will offer a localised selection
Alex Glass

As Brian said the best place is the local libraries but if you are having difficulty let me know I have a few you can have.

If you can drop by the Chambers before I leave on 3rd May you can have Glasgow Green, Botanic Gardens, Springburn Park and Bellahouston Park. I will also give you a copy of the Medieval City Map if you want and a few other little leaflets as well.

Excellent idea and a great way of paying respect to those lost in the line of duty.

Probably no-one else bothers, but why does the Clyde Bridges tour always end at Dalmarnock Bridge? A few bridges and viaducts (Carmyle, for one. Few Cambuslang bridges too, that you can actually walk over.) are there if you continue walking for a bit.

The bridges tour covers the bridges that are inside the city boundaries, further upstream from Dalmarnock you're into South Lanarkshire

I live near the Maryhill Road incident.  I was actually talking to someone about it last week, and then spotted the memorial stone in the road the next night.
