For some time, the lost village of Caldervale (now gone) at Blantyre’s North Western boundary has only been able to be found by the few items remaining there. The odd clothes pole, a small shed or two, but visitors intent on finding out where the location was, are guided helpfully by this little seat. A makeshift bench, to sit on and enjoy the view. Written on it is “Caldervale” and it’s nickname “Fin me oot”.
I was recently pleasantly surprised to find out recently that a friend actually maintains and wrote this name on this bench. To maintain his privacy, I’ve kept him anonymous, but I know he’s reading this. If you want to be named, please let me know and I can update the story.
