Port Glasgow Heritage Walk

I've worked out a Heritage Walk for Port Glasgow which takes in many of the important aspects of the town's history and heritage.  Starting at Newark Castle, the walk takes you around several interesting sites.  The booklet includes a map and directions along with more photographs and links.
