Site visit – Team 8C

Crossing between George St, Duke St and High St

When we visited the site we quite quickly decided to move away from the Linen Bank and rather pay more attention to it surroundings, focusing primarily on High Street as a whole. We began by walking down High Street to (and past) Trongate until we reached the River Clyde, after which we walked back up High Street towards the Glasgow Cathedral and finally the Necropolis. We did this in order to gain a better understanding of the context of the site and its locale. This led us to discover a feature of High Street that is unfortunately painfully obvious, being that a large portion of the street lies vacant.
