Cathedral and Victoria Cross memorial

Posted by Jackie on June 28, 2008

Last weekend I took a walk around the Cathedral precinct, so over the next few days I’ll show you a few of the sights. Glasgow has several Cathedrals (I’ve already shown St Mary’s, the Episcopal cathedral, on this blog), but if you ask any local about “the” cathedral this is the one you’ll be directed to. It is dedicated to St Mungo, also known as St Kentigern, who is one of the Celtic saints – he was consecrated Bishop of Strathclyde around 540 AD, and is said to be the founder of what is now Glasgow. The denomination of the Cathedral is Church of Scotland.

The small monument in the foreground is a memorial commemorating all the Glaswegians who have won the Victoria Cross.

    Marvellous shot the way you have the foreground and background aligned. Didn’t know the history so a welcome account.
