Springwell Place was a former dead end street on the south side of Glasgow Road. It is first referenced in 1878 and last appearing around the mid 1920’s.
Although the entrance is still there today, there are no homes or businesses at the address and as such the name has fallen out of use.
This should not be confused with Springwell Terrace which was directly opposite on the north side of Glasgow Road.
Former properties on either side of the road included McNair’s Land and Allison Place. Springwell Place was also the only entrance into the former slaughterhouse and Semple’s Land, located to the south at the back of Allison Place. A footpath now connects this former Street with High Blantyre’s Strathyre Rd.
Today, it looks like this:
