Supreme Nature 52 – Week 17

Derelict site near the Gallowgate in Glasgow, Scotland

Derelict Site

This week’s image shows a derelict site between the Gallowgate and Duke Street in Glasgow, Scotland, the concrete cracked and overgrown with grass and bushes. An area once covered with industrial units, planned regeneration works are already underway on adjacent areas of land including a recently opened supermarket directly opposite this site.

In the background is the site of the former Glasgow Meat Market, the large shed roof just visible behind the trees. The twin high rise blocks in the distance (“The Gallowgate Twins”), currently the tallest buildings in Scotland, have been earmarked for demolition although a date has not yet been decided.
