About this Event

They have made the art works Spider bridge, Stacks and Watch House Apertures. These art works are sited at Kirkintilloch, Lenzie and Cadder in Bishopbriggs and take inspiration from three unique stories which help inform the identity of each area. These three stories are - Spider Bridge, a Victorian footbridge which connected Kirkintilloch to Lenzie and spanning the Bothlin Burn Valley from 1887 until its demolition in 1987. The historical approach to lowland rasied bog landscape as a resource and 20th century attempts to industrialise peat extraction at Lenzie Moss. The work of Sadie McLellan which can be found at Cadder Church and the innovative concreate & glass ‘Dalle de Verre’ process she employed in 1965 at the Church of the Sacred Heart in Cumbernauld.
