Stoneymeadow Junction

Another great photo of Stoneymeadow Junction.  With view beyond up to the “Lady Nancy” fields, this is the junction at Stoneymeadow as if coming from Dechmont. On the right, the former Boyd’s Farm by this era given itself over to a being a little shop.

The shop on the right are now demolished, the land having several uses since. It is currently vacant.

Sandy Wilkie Jim Boyd was this your folks place? Same Boyd? Marches with Lettrickhills!

Elizabeth Weaver Many’s the walk we had up this road as children. We sometimes went up that way to roll our boiled eggs on Easter Sunday (further back down the road from the shop) but occasionally on hot summer days, we’d be allowed a drink or an ice cream from the shop before setting off back home. I remember sitting on the bench outside. Happy days!
