Author and historian Bill Findlay is working on a new book which will be released early next year.

The ‘Villages of Bishopbriggs’ will see Bill continue exploring the history behind the various communities associated with the town.

Bill’s previous books include Auchinairn: The Forgotten Village; another about Mavis Valley and one about the Cadder Pit disaster in 1913.

Working alongside East Dunbartonshire Provost Una Walker and others, Bill was one of the key contributors helping to mark 100th anniversary of the pit disaster in 2013.

His books are available from Poppies in Bishopbriggs, Huntershill Village and Bishoprbriggs Libaray.
