I recently met up with Margaret Stewart who lives in High Blantyre to scan some of her old photos of Blantyre. You can imagine my delight when Margaret passed me a little photo album with some great little ‘gems’ in it! Like this photo of the former Auchentibber Gardens, likely taken in the 1920’s.
The marble balustrades and arches are almost all long gone, the whole area now overgrown in woodland. What a marvellous place this must have been to go for refreshments and watch the games. Wooden trellis terraces, provide the perfect shaded vantage point.
