Walking Back to the Future: Shettleston Heritage Trail

FUNDERS & PARTNERS: Heritage Lottery Fund, Fuse, Shettleston Housing Association, Shettleston History Project, Legacy 2014
LOCATION: Shettleston, Glasgow


WB2FLogo.pngWe worked closely with community groups, schools and Fuse Youth Café on this HLF-funded project in Glasgow's east end.  Through workshops and other events, community members identified the places and buildings that chart the neighbourhood's history and celebrate the resilience of its residents, past and present.  These were incorporated in a heritage trail, with accompanying leaflet and digital app.  Local residents were trained as tour guides and offered guided tours during the 2014 Commonwealth Games.  The project took an inter-generational approach, aiming to include everyone from primary school children to sheltered housing residents, with the goal of helping to stimulate change in the urban environment and in community members' perceptions of their heritage and their relationship to it
