An article in the Milngavie and Bearsden Herald about new plans to capitalise on the Antonine Wall. The views of businesses are currently being canvassed:
Businesses are being urged to help build on the popularity of the Antonine Wall and complete an online survey as part of efforts to maximise the pulling power of what was the northern most frontier barrier of the Roman Empire.
The wall runs through five local authority areas - East and West Dunbartonshire, Glasgow City, North Lanarkshire and Falkirk.
East Dunbartonshire Council and its fellow authorities - together with Historic Scotland - manage and promote the wall and have commissioned the survey as part of a wider economic impact assessment. It’s hoped the business survey will help to identify the historic wall’s current and future potential as a major tourist attraction.
