Glasgows Cobbled Streets and Lanes

Postby glasgowken » Thu Apr 05, 2007 6:36 pm

Leading on from Shug's thread,
http://www.hiddenglasgow.com/forums/vie ... php?t=5883

Please post your photos of cobbles, setts, and other old road surfaces here :-)

I'll start off (these have been posted already, but I haven't got many :-()

Albion Street...
Ashton Lane/Cresswell Lane...
Rottenrow...(think there are some showing where the road is pot-holed).

I also recently drove over a large pot hole (can't think where!) where the cobbles underneath were exposed.

I'm sure I remember seeing St Vincent Street still fully cobbled when they were resurfacing it last year.

Not Glasgow but G81, Dunn St ., Dalmuir still has cobbles just before the tunnel entrance to Dalmuir Park.

Walked past a length today - Napier Rd in Govan (not sure I'd want to get a camera out there).
Lots of glory to the person who can get the cobbles and the road name in one shot....

Murano Street, that runs up the side of Ruchill Park at the student village. It has a very thin layer of tarmac over the original cobbles, you can still see them at the edges just before the kerb starts. Very bumpy ride!

Thanks Fossy :)
I'll have to get that wee lane next to Anniesland Station, it still has the cart stones as well as cobbles.
