Ferries used as mobile RSG'S-CALMAC
Military Bunkers
BT tunnels and secure exchanges
Scottish home and Health Dept stores/equipment and food
Hospital/fire service/ambulance dispersion plans...
the list is huge...

I spoke to a colleague who worked for the MOD in Kentigern house for many years. I was informed there are 7 MOD buildings within Glasgow City Centre. Kentigern House has a bunker in the basement and the whole building has positive pressure air system to keep out nasties. In addition to this there is a small albeit functional range within the building and a tunnel connecting it to another building which was not mentioned. This is 100% genuine source who spent many many years working wihtin the building.

Did????
Any of the good people in here ever get "HUCKLED" just for LOOKING????
Hmmm! I wonder.
I was born in 1960 @ Easterhill Place Tollcross Glasgow. I was subsequently "overspilled to Hell on Earth or as it is still called "Cumbernauld" Wherein I managed to escape back to The Second City.
Since the return I have managed to get HUCKLED no less than 22 times for my "foraging through the past of the End of Glasgow Old Power Stations (Dalmarnock) Steelworks (Stewart and LLoyds Collvilles etc) I love it
If anyone needs a Co conspirator for an adventure get in touch PLEEEEEEEESSE

I did a search and turned up nothing on

The Atlantic Mills, Bridgeton.
D&J Anderson

wee links here...
http://www.theglasgowstory.com/image.php?inum=TGSA05078

and this was the catalyst for this enquiry, an American Gentleman's Blog called a Suitable Wardrobe,
http://asuitablewardrobe.dynend.com/2009/02/touch-it-and-be-hooked.html

I'm stunned there's nothing on t'interweb about this mill! Cannae think where else to post an enquiry of this sort so I'm putting it here so the mod's can decide whether to start a new thread or stick it into anold one.

Hope we can come up with an address or some pics.

I haven't read all of the suggestions, so I appologise if this has been proposed before: Monuments to William Wallace telling the truth, using facts. This was a real person who gave his all for Scotland but it seems as though people from all over the world, including Scotland, believe him to be a fictional character. There is a thread on this site talking about it.

Cheers, Aulyin

Monuments to William Wallace, using actual facts, telling the truth about the life of the man. This was a real person who gave his all for Scotland but it seems as though people from all over the world, including Scotland, believe him to be a fictional character.

When Braveheart came onto our screens everybody went mad about it, then they started complaining about the story not being factual. Well lets get the story as close as we can. There's not much evidence, but what there is should be made publicly clear, so that we aren't totally ignorant of someone who was voted "Scotland's Greatest Idol"

I'm not talking about his battles or his death, I'm talking about his family and his early years.

Is it simply that so many people with letters after their names have made those names by giving others (us) the wrong information with definate statements: saying things like "Wallace was born in El********, instead of may have been born in El********". And these facts should stick because........
I'm still picking up books which tell me that Wallaces father was Malcolm, when he told us himself in a letter found in the early 1900's, that his father was Alan. What chance have we got? With everybody out there trying to discover their roots, do you not agree that someone should find out "Scotlands Greatest Hero's" roots as well?

I totally agree with you Aulyin. I don't know anything about the great man. I do know of the battle o' the bell o'the brae, of the Well at Wallacewell Rd and possibly how Stockwell Street got its name, but apart from that I know nothing and would like to know more about Wallaces contact with Glasgow

What about a thread including screenshots of Taggart locations, then and now? Loads of places u see in older Mark McManus episodes have changed, either demolished or redeveloped. Decent idea?

There was a book wasn't there- something like 'Taggart's Glasgow, with Mark McManus'? I think i saw it in the oxfam bookshop in Byres Road a while back.

Didn't one of our number contribute a photograph to that or was it another 'Taggart' thingy?
