Hi

Walking the Antonine Wall

APRS Director Kat Jones is spending some of her weekends and evenings exploring Green Belts with the aim to circumnavigate greater Glasgow and surrounding towns. In this section she walks part of the Antonine Wall from Kilpatrick and finds how much of our own infrastructure and landscape today relates to Roman civil engineering.

Day 21: From Rhu to Renton

This year’s family Boxing Day walk had to be another section of Kat’s circumnavigation of Glasgow’s green belt. She dragged three generations of her family out to navigate past ruins from a medieval chapel and a castle, to a masterpiece of Brutalist architecture. They encounter railway, dual carriageway and river crossings and a farmer determined that they won’t be allowed across his land.
