The Falls of Clyde:
A Designed Landscape at the crossroads

AGM 6pm; Lecture 7.15, Wednesday 14 May

Following the AGM, Professor Mark Stephens will provide a lay interpretation of the Bonnington Estate that makes up part of the Falls of Clyde Designed Landscape. He will argue that if the proposals to destroy much of it through quarrying can be defeated, its regeneration could unlock its potential for greater popular understanding of its history and significance.

Mark Stephens is Chair of Save Our Landscapes and Professor of Public Policy at Heriot-Watt University.
