    Default Belgrove or Bellgrove area of Glasgow?

    The site currently has an area of Glasgow called Belgrove, but almost every other source uses Bellgrove (e.g. Bellgrove Street, Bellgrove railway station, Bellgrove Hotel, etc.). The locally active reviewer / photographer Alastair Barter uses the former, so I guess he's right, but it seems very odd that this doesn't match what's used by others. Any thoughts?

    All the maps I have use Bellgrove for the area

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?

    Quite, but if you try changing it (as I have several times) Alastair usually comes right back in seconds...

    no comment, but Glasgow City Council also calls it Bellgrove although it straddles the Gallowgate and Calton wards. Probably doesn't matter that much.

    Seems to me the area might well be called Reidvale anyway. There's Reidvale Adventure Play Association a few metres away, and Reidvale Neighbourhood Centre too, whereas Bellgrove station is not so near. But not worth getting into a tizzy over.

    Absolutely, I've always thought of areas as just a convenient way of finding nearby pubs.
