Last night I was writing up Anderson Gardens and Stanley Court down at the Village, but need more detail. I’m stuck, so perhaps YOU can help.
Questions I have include:
a) Who was the private Developer?
b) What Year were these homes built (or even roughly – definitely early than 2004 by the way)
c) Any stories associated with them?
d) Any surnames wish to be included in the Encyclopedia entry who may live there now?
“ANDERSON GARDENS is a small contemporary, residential row of modern 2 storey homes located at Low Blantyre immediately opposite entrance to David Livingstone Centre at Station Road.
They were named after James Anderson JP, a Chairman of the 5th District Council in the1950’s and who as a ‘Village’ man was also a local Councillor. Built on the site of the former prefabs in (1978?)”
STANLEY COURT is a contemporary, residential block of modern 2 stroey flats located at Low Blantyre opposite the entrance to David Livingstone Centre at Station Road.
Built on the former site of the Stanley Hotel, previous to that had been the bleach works and before that, the Clydesdale Oil Works, which operated there from the 1930’s until the 1950’s, private developers constructed the brick built family homes in (1990?). A small dead end road leads to the rear monoblocked residential carpark. The back of the homes face out to the River Clyde. It is 40m above sea level.”
Thanks for any help given.
