Walking Group Week 6: The Clyde Bridges

Walking Group Week 6: The Clyde Bridges

There are 21 bridges in Glasgow that cross the River Clyde and last week our walking group had a walk that took them across 5 of them.

The first of these was the South Portland Street Suspension Bridge which took the group from north to south. One of the group had vivid memories from childhood of regularly crossing this bridge with her father on the way to nursery more than half a century previously.

A walk along the South Clydeside to the Tradeston Footbridge was next where the group crossed back to the north of the river and followed the path along to the Clyde Arch, fondly known locally as the Squinty Bridge. This bridge took the group back to the south and then along to the Bells Bridge where they crossed again and then along to the nearby Millennium Bridge which was the final bridge of the day!

This is where the walk ended for some of the group who went their separate ways but after a refreshing cuppa in the BBC cafe the rest decided to make the return trip on foot via a slightly shortened route with fewer bridges.

Despite the chilly and drizzly weather it was a fine day out.
