Pavement Carvings, Candleriggs
These unique pavement carvings were introduced as part of the Candleriggs Re -Development. They were made by Francis Pelly and show symbols of the various trades which Glasgow has been famous for. This carving shows a set square, calipers and saw which carpenters might use.

The paving stones also carry poetry - right under your feet you can find verses by the renowned Glasgow poet Edwin Morgan. The verses have an eery, nostalgic quality to them and speak of Glasgow's past and the people who worked hard to make the city what it is.
