Residents tell of regular fires in Glasgow tower blocks
RESIDENTS of high rise flats in Scotland have told how they are living in fear after reporting regular fires in their own tower blocks.
Dense cities tend to be huge and comparatively poor. So cities like Glasgow and Liverpool, which have a lot of tower blocks and flats for their socially disadvantaged populations. Glasgow has the highest density of tower blocks in Western Europe.
Sparsely populated cities in the UK tend to be rich ones, and rich cities tend to be small. Cities like York, Harrogate and Oxford are all pretty small and reasonably wealthy, and have lots of old buildings, so they dont have huge tower blocks and hundreds of flats to make them dense.
look, im glaswegian & even i cant deny it - this place is a dump. beautiful scenery in parts of scotland (awful weather mind) but come into the city of glasgow for example & be prepared to meet dilapidated tower blocks, wasteland, neds, sectarian violence, alcoholics galore, & alot (cant deny it folks) of poverty stricken residents. its the murder capital of europe, & therefore not the nicest of places.
to be fair, all brits tend to ridicule the other countries which make up the UK. scotland get its fair share due to its severe case of 'small man syndrome', & for the image other brits have of the residents (violent, unhealthy, poor). Also its INCREDIBLY anti-english (anyone who says otherwise is deluded). england probably doesn't like that, so takes the piss as a bit of a backlash.
i think glasgow does have the worst housing ever!
everywhere is really scummy and i cant think of one single town that is remotely safe.
Thats why I'm going to move down south!
There are no tower blocks and its all just houses and stuff :)
Until it was refurbished, Grenfell Tower was probably as safe as those tower blocks built since the Ronan Point disaster that haven't been demolished.
the tallest --building-- the glasgow university tower
the tallest --structure-- was the inverkip power station chimney, but it was demolished july 28, 2013.
it is the glasgow tower, at this time.
"At 127 metres tall the Glasgow Tower is currently the tallest tower in Scotland. It holds a Guinness World Record for being the tallest tower in the world in which the whole structure is capable of rotating 360 degrees...
...Tallest building debate
When completed in 2001, it became the second tallest tower in Scotland, behind the Inverkip Power Station chimney. The website for the tower claims it is "The tallest freestanding building in Scotland". Although the tower has an observation deck at 345 feet (105 metres), it does not have floors continuously from the ground and therefore it is not considered a building by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH)."
so what -is- the tallest structure in scotland in 2013 is the tower. what -was- the tallest structure in scotland in 2013 would be the chimney.
"The final significant structure, its landmark chimney, was demolished by controlled explosions at 10 pm on Sunday 28 July 2013."--3rd link
A MUST SEE is the Kelvingrove art gallery museum. It has just been refurbished and is the most popular place in Glasgow. Also there is the retail sector in Glasgow which has some of the best shop in the UK and the main shopping street, Buchanan Street is ranked as the 7th best shopping street in the WORLD. There is the newly developed Science Centre which has a planetarium, shows and exhibits and a cinema the size of a 5-a-side football pitch. The Science Tower is open and lets you see far and wide all over Glasgow and is the only tower in the world which turns around 360 degrees from the ground. You could take your family to the Glasgow Transport museum where it shows all the ships built on the world famous Clyde River and the old transport vehicles used in Glasgow at least 50 years ago. If it's a sunny day, you could go to one of the many parks like the kelvingrove park in the west end where there is the calm river Kelvin and human friendly squirrels. It is never hard to get to any of these areas as the city has the only complete underground system in the uk serving 15 stations with one serving near the art gallery and kelvingrove park, it has an airport less than 8 miles from city centre and has many bus routes. The suburban rail is the most extensive system outside London serving 180+ stations just in the city council boundarys alone!!! So Glasgow is a great city for visiting and the weather isn't really as bad as people say. Also not far from Glasgow is the Clyde Valley which within is a world heritage site, - New Lanark - with Perrigran Falcons as local residents. There is also Loch Lomand which is jst 30 minutes from Glasgow where the scenery is nice. I would suggest to stay at the Holiday Inn or find a hotel on the outskirts of Glasgow. Remember to ask anyone in Glasgow if you are lost as we are one of te friendliest places in the world. :D
