A collection of historical and genalogical records
100 years ago to day - in the Glasgow Herald
At a meeting of the Glasgow Archaeological Society last night the acting secretary reported that arrangements had been completed between Mr Douglas of Mains and the First Commissioner of Works, whereby two acres of land, lying to the south of the cemetery at Bearsden and containing a very well preserved section of the Antonine Wall had been placed under the Ancient Monuments Act, thus securing for all time the preservation of this valuable relic. As a result of representations made some time ago by the society, the Parish Council of New Kilpatrick had enclosed another part of the wall lying within the cemetery at Bearsden and had opened the negotiations now completed regarding the more important portion lying on Mr Douglas's property.
