I'm trying to do some non-writing research for my blog and can't seem to find this information I need. Doing a post on the Glasgow Necropolis and the main site I've used for information states that the monument to John Knox is the tallest, but it doesn't give an exact height. It only states that the statue of him on top is 12 feet high. So how tall is the rest of it?

I can't go for that, no-ooo, no can do.

Hmmm, maybe we need a song chain thread in Office Party.

Hi Nola,

I had to look the height up myself to be honest. All I knew about the Necropolis was that it's the centre of Glasgow, I've got an ancestor in there, and it's very nice to wander around in the Summer.

But it's 70 feet high in total. And here's a link for you.
