Thanks to Emma Louise for sharing this photo of work currently underway today (9th November) on “The BIG H”, i.e the roundabout for the Technology Park at High Blantyre slip. Now I wonder… is the icon being PULLED down or is it being RENOVATED? (It was looking rather tatty If I’m honest.)
By 4pm it had been completely demolished, gone and carted away in a big skip. Looks like its gone for good. Never thought an “H” for Hamilton would have lasted so long in Blantyre. Now, we need something meaningful for our town in this spot.
I love the fact that Blantyre Project & Blantyre Telegraph have a keen “unofficial” group of reporters! Nothing is unnoticed in Blantyre. lol
Update: In Spring 2016, it’s still down. Looks like 9th November 2014 was the end of the Big H.
