William Wallace & Springburn Museum
Some ten years ago, as part of the Glasgow 1999 celebrations to honour the city's new-found pride in its built environment, the curator of the now-closed Springburn Museum, Dr Gilbert T. Bell, crafted an informative and inspiring series of information sheets about the history of Springburn and the surrounding area.
One of those information sheets was entitled 'Wi' Wallace Bled', William Wallace: Local Hero and Guardian of Scotland. In the leaflet Dr Gilbert detailed both the reasons why the site of the Glasgow Wallace Monument is so important to this country, as well as the dangers and opportunities of future developments which might take place in the green belt area around the Robroyston monument.
This link will take you to pictures which depict the inscriptions on the monument which indicate the significance of the place the monument marks in Wallace's life:
This memorial erected 1900 AD by public subscription is to mark the site of the house in which the hero of Scotland was basely betrayed and captured about midnight on 5th August 1305 when alone with his faithful friend and co-patriot Kerlie who was slain.
