Margaret Greene and David Webster have prepared a booklet entitled “Glasgow Necropolis: A Geological Trail” on behalf of the Strathclyde Geoconservation Group. The booklet focuses on the geology associated with the necropolis and a selection of its monuments. The trail was described by Margaret on the virtual excursion that she presented to the society on September 30, 2020. The trail makes a fascinating walk in the old heart of the city.

Explore the geology of some of the remarkable monuments in this cemetery. The architecture, sculpture, views and stories continue to fascinate visitors.
