under the Motorway

some real hidden glasgow for you. this location is under the M8, near Shields Road.


our entrance:

getting closer, someone has laid down some wood to cover a muddy area inside the entrance:

our first view inside. this is where the litter thrown from the motorway ends up. walls enclose both sides, with only a couple narrow gaps in the top:

looking back at the entrance/exit:
Image


there's one area with a narrow gap above it. this must provide enough rain and sunlight for plants to grow, as the rest of this location is barren:

someone lives/has lived here:

this is back on the other side of the entrance, looking up:

Theres an early episode of Taggart where they were under the M8 circa 1987.

Damn, can't see the photos! Was at a tunnel near that area today, but it's not THE tunnels, which is what I was looking for. I keep getting hints, and have spent half the night on google maps....
