How Old Are Yew?

Return to shortlist

Nominated for Category A: Investigating and Recording - Volunteer/community-based projects recording local history and heritage.


The How Old are Yew? Group was formed to research and share the history of the now demolished Castlemilk House and its grounds which now form Castlemilk Park.  The group has carried out archaeological digs, created exhibitions for the community and generated a 3D model of Falstaff - a sculpture that used to be in the grounds of Castlemilk House.  On an ongoing basis they raise awareness of Castlemilk’s rich history via guided walks, talks and social media.
