Grahamston is a forgotten piece of Glasgow history.  It vanished beneath the foundations of Glasgow Central Station more than 100 years ago, but its memory lives on in buildings, in street patterns and not least in the urban legend of an abandoned village beneath the platforms of Scotland's busiest railway station.

Come along and hear Historian Kevin Scott tell the story of Grahamston at this free event.
