The Clydesdale Oil Work were located within Blantyre Village, near the River Clyde. The entrance was directly across from the Station Road entrance to the David Livingstone Centre. (Today it would be beside the flats at Anderson Gardens at the foot of Station Road)
The works proved a dangerous place, regularly catching fire. The company existed until the late 1950s and is not to be confused with the oil work elsewhere in Blantyre.
I’ve marked up a little map from 1936 showing where the oil works were. Today, a young woodland marks the spot, near the Clyde Walkways.
