'Walking Back to the Future'

'Walking Back to the Future' 

(Shettleston, Glasgow, Scotland)

This project was an HLF funded project focusing on an area in the East end of Glasgow called Shettleston.  The project worked with 6 different community groups including a Sheltered Housing Complex, 2 schools, a youth club, a history group and a group of adults.  The aim was to gather research on the heritage of the area and produce a heritage trail in time for the Commonwealth Games. This was in the form of an App and a leaflet.  www.walkingbacktothefuture.co.uk  -

The app is available for free on Android and iTunes - just search ‘Shettleston’.
