It's a rather lovely Citroën DS that the plate is on. No wonder the bloke on the number 28 trap is gawping, it must have seemed like a spaceship in those days

What a numpty eh! It is still there, but I think something might be getting done to it. Haven't been back to my parents in a while to check. It''s been called Cambuslang College for years and years, which I always thought odd as it's nowhere near Cambuslang. I'll have a look at it soon and let you k...

This village is where my dad grew up in. It's named Bothwellhaugh, but is known by everyone who lives there as The Pailice'. It was a typical mining village from what he's told me. They lived in a room and kitchen in Douglas Street (which he swears blind I didn't get my name from!), Sounds not too b...

Ah the Anatomy Museum, and the infamous huge willie in a jar. Long thought to be a Uni legend until I was fortunate enough to get a wander around one day. My he was a big lad, made me come over all shy. Mind you at least mine is still attached and not in a jar... Top exhibits for me were the cross s...

I'm certainly up for some ROC posts. The day I spent with Nick was a real eye opener. The ones we did were all in Dumfries & Galloway and in the deep south of Ayrshire. I will scan in the Ravenscraig photos when I get back from holiday. I have on of the view of the towers from our front garden o...

Living a mile from PIK airport, I'll console myself with the knowledge that a large airburst is just about to detonate above my head, and with any luck will vapourise me in an instant. Growing up in Motherwell in the '80s, and being terrified after watching Threads at school, I consoled myself with ...

Damn, missed a bit

I forgot to add. If anyone is up for a bit of UE in Lanarkshire / Glasgow / Ayrshire i'd be interested. Bit of a novice though, my only experience is a day surveying ROC posts with Nick Catford.

Hello all. My name is Douglas. Born in Glasgow, grew up in Craigneuk, went to school in Motherwell (Glencairn Primary, Dalziel High). Now escaped to the much more pleasant environment that is Prestwick, but still working in Glasgow. I grew up on Meadowhead Road, the street that the entrance to Raven...

Did you ever go to the old school building on Craigneuk Street on the way to Wishaw? I grew up in Craigneuk (but survived to tell the tale) and used to go past that place every day on my way to school in Motherwell. It's been closed up for as long as I can remember (I'm now 32), I have the vaguest o...
