Glasgow Cathedral

Having made several trips now to Glasgow, and wandering all over the east end, drinking in the history, I finally made the jaunt up the hill to see Glasgow Cathedral. The current Cathedral has been around since 1197. The Cathedral has been a place of Christian worship for over 800 years. 

Of particular interest are the lower chapels 

Children's Chapel

Nurse's Chapel

the tomb of St Mungo, Patron Saint of Glasgow, who died in 603. 

and St Mungo's Well, a sacred place of pilgrimage to early Christians
