Lennoxtown

A town in East Dunbartonshire, Lennoxtown lies by the Glazert Water in the southern foothills of the Campsie Fells, 3 miles north of Kirkintilloch. Long associated with the Lennox family, it developed from the late 18th century as a planned village in association with cotton manufacture, calico printing, coal and limestone mining and the manufacture of alum and nails. A hospital was established 2 miles to the north in the grounds of Lennox Castle which was built in 1837-41 and one of the few remaining modern industries is the bottling of spring water. Craigend, 2½ miles west of Lennoxtown, was the birthplace of the explorer Sir Thomas Livingstone Mitchell.

Kirkintilloch

Kirkintilloch is a burgh in Scotland, approximately eight miles north-east of central Glasgow. The town is the administrative centre of East Dunbartonshire council, and in the census of 2001, had a population of 20,281.

Lord Provost's Pageant 2006

This year's Lord Provost's Pageant celebrates 'The Treasures of Kelvingrove' in a colourful and creative costume display. Lord Provost, Liz Cameron, will be joined by school and youth organisations from across the city who will bring to life some of the major exhibits from Glasgow's much loved and newly-refurbished Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum.
