Broompark Road, 1977

Standing at the corner of Broompark Road near the crossroads at Stonefield Road/Crescent. This is 23rd April 1977 and pictured is the site then proposed for the current Larkfield Community Hall.

The Bing was still being levelled. In the background midway down Stonefield Road you can see the partial steeple of the Anderson Church, which would burn down completely 17 months later.
