Forrest – Park

My family connections with Blantyre go back to the 1800’s, with several members of the family lost in the Dixon pit disaster. My mother, who is in her 90th year, (at time of writing) has a wealth of information available. My great uncle lived in the thatched cottage opposite Aggie Bains, at Barnhill, next to, what is now the Hoolets, George Park.

Aggie Bain, who lived in Bardykes Road, next to the Barnhill Tavern, is seen walking along the crown of Broompark Road.
