Jim Leishman kindly recently shared this old Aerial photo. Taken on the 4th June 1974, it shows Townfoot Farm (formerly Blantyrefereme), just of Blantyre Farm Road.
Comparing it against the modern 2016 aerial photo, you can see some instant comparisons. Like the removal of the large adjacent pylon. Or the extensions to the farm buildings and houses and even the renovation and rebuild of the barns to the present accommodation.
This is an area of Blantyre I’ve not written much about it, this post serving as my reminder to do something about that. There’s a complex arrangement of buildings at that location, not far from the scrapyards and many dotted houses and buildings nearby now no longer there. It’s now on my “to do” list with a visit planned.
