Re: Ruchazie, old and new

I remember Gartcraig House as the Haunted Hoose, apparently there was also a large gunpowder magazine nearby, probably serviced by the canal & wouldn't be too near the house? Gunpowder presumably needed for quarries, collieries, the militia? etc!

Re: Molendinar Burn

Re-reading this stuff, smashing thread, I think the natural source of the Molendinar is a burn which once ran where Mossvale Road is now, east into the Hogganfield into that corner of the loch, south of the outflow from Frankfield Loch . This burn now runs in a culvert which drains to Hogganfield Po...

Re: Bombs over Glasgow in WW2

From East Dunbartonshire local history week information. "In the early stages of the war radio news programmes were hacked into with "German calling, Germany calling". Occasionally these news bulletines broadcast items of news with reference to events that were happening in Bishopbri...

Re: One for the railway heads

Grossly underestimating passenger numbers has been the general rule in Scotland of late, the Border line will be no different. Good response in todays Herald letters.

Re: Disused graveyards/ locations with alledged occult conne

QPR, if you're still above ground? A wee article on the cholera outbreak of 1849. Glasgow was overcrowded with folk escaping the famine in Ireland and the Highlands, in the east end the dead were stacked in burial pits six coffins deep. http://www.happyhaggis.co.uk/1849cholera.htm hope this works!

Re: Looking South East from Cranhill in 1966

How about the wee room up the pipe at Hogganfield Loch? Nope, I'm lost again. Steve, the reservoir at Ruchazie overflows into the Hogganfield Loch via a pipe into the burn on the golf course. If you crawl through the pipe you come to a wee room where you can stand up, the pipe from the reservoir en...

Re: One for the railway heads

I don't ever think we'll see a Labour Transport Transport Minister to make comparisons. They were certainly all in favour of the Edinburgh Tram Project, which just about says everything we need to know.
