VIDEO: Step back in time on Dundee’s new Discovery Walk

Mary Slessor (Lynne Binnie) and Lily Walker (Hollie Whitfield) take a sneak at one the plaques before the unveiling.

Lord Provost Bob Duncan formally unveiled the first 10 plaques to be installed at Dundee’s new Discovery Walk today.

The walk is a series of specially designed bronze plaques commemorating famous people from, or connected with, the city who have made significant contributions to science and society.

Lord Provost Duncan formally unveiled the first 10 plaques at a packed Slessor Gardens on the city’s Central Waterfront.

There are nine plaques commemorating scientists, engineers, writers, artists, social reformers and philanthropists, plus a tenth introducing the walk.

The individuals being celebrated were chosen in a public consultation exercise last year.
