Tollcross


Glasgow City

Located to the east of Glasgow City, Tollcross lies between Shettleston and Bridgeton. Originally a small weaving village, it was separated from Shettleston by Tollcross Park. These areas were annexed in 1912, and extended the city boundary to its modern limit. Macfarlane and Lang's Victoria biscuit factory opened here in 1925 and remains an important employer, now part of the United Biscuits conglomerate.
