The rich history of the Green in Aberdeen has been made available in a heritage leaflet.

The Green is one of the most historic areas in the city centre and the leaflet details its story.

To mark its publication a guided walk will take place at 2.30pm on Sunday.

The heritage leaflet and walk have been organised as part of the Green Townscape Heritage Initiative, which is a five-year conservation-led programme.

Its aim is to restore the Green to its former glory.

The full colour and illustrated leaflet is available from venues throughout the city, including Aberdeen Art Gallery and museums.

Leaflet author Chris Croly is a historian with Aberdeen City Council and will be the guide for the walk.

Places are free but must be booked through Aberdeen Maritime Museum.
