Hi Pals, I attended a launch of a booklet called Parkhead Heritage Trail, produced by Parkhead History Team, Peter Mortimer (pwm437 Gpal), Thomas McCann (GPal),Irene Hartshorn and Robert Winning. This is an excellent booklet, plenty of photos and information about Parkhead, 22 pages in all I hope to have a electronic copy to post on this thread, copies can be picked up at Parkhead Library, I have 4 spare copies for anybody who is interested The booklet was the result after Peter and his team discovered that Parkhead was the only area in Glasgow not to have one, so they set about the task and today the fruits of their research etc were finally realised, it took 18 months approx
Sounds really interestin, Norrie, though ah doot there will be any mention o the spot where wee Ned o the Cross chibbed big Alec an hid tae run aff tae England afore the polis got him. Still there, so faur as ah know.
Bit ah did love Parkheed an the cross in particular. Hated tae see it aw boarded up last time aw wis there. Hope some o it his been rescued.

Hi all, my brother informed me about this new site Parkhead histories which is this site, brilliant stuff, I have only just started but there is a lot in it. Full of old interesting forgotten information on this part of Glasgow, well done to those who created it, made it and done it, I tried to leave a message of gratitude but it would not let me so if you read this, well done to whoever, it gives me inspiration for this site, old memories clicking back. If you get the time have a look through, well worth it. All the best andyt.
