A comic book has been created to “bring to life” the history of Hermitage Park and Helensburgh with the help of local groups.

A Walk Through Time features the tales of Cranberry the time travelling play horse, the haunting of Hill House, and the legend of Stookie Bill.

The new book was put together with the help of Magic Torch Comics, community groups and school pupils.

Design and storytelling workshops took place with Jean’s Bothy, Route 81, the Drumfork Community Centre, and Hermitage Primary School.

The project was part of wider regeneration work taking place at the park, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

Councillor Alastair Redman, Argyll and Bute Council's policy lead for economic growth and communities, said: “What a fantastic unique project that tells the story of Hermitage Park, and Helensbugh, in such a fun way.

“We know that Helensburgh has a rich history and this great comic book now brings that past and folklore to life with amazing tales for everyone to enjoy.

“Thank you to everyone who worked on the book. So many people have memories of Hermitage Park and it’s wonderful to read about some of the fascinating history and characters that make the area so special.”
