This week’s quick questions. Not a quiz, I genuinely don’t know the answers and looking for YOUR help.
Q1. Who are the current OWNERS of the West End Bar? (McCormacks?, spelling?). I have the year they took over as being 2008.
Q2. What year did CALLAGHAN WYND housing estate get built across from the Westend? Housing developer? How was it named? Any interesting stories about the estate?
Q3. What can you tell me about the ROAD heading out of Blantyre from the Westend towards Spittal? Accidents? Incidents? Realigned when? Stories?
Q4. The STONE CLAD HOUSE on Bardykes Road sitting at the entrance to Bardykes House, when was that built and does it have a name? I have it being built in 1997 by Martin Miller’s Stonemasons (Stonecube rings a bell) but this is just a memory and hope to have confirmation.
All comments will be noted for inclusion in “Blantyre Explained” encyclopedia volumes. As always, thanks in advance!
