The section explores all of Blantyre’s Bridges, Tunnels & Culverts in detail, with unique researched narrative, fact and photos. It also touches upon Boat Crossings, Railway Crossings, River Ford Crossings and Weirs. In 172 exclusive and unique articles, compilation of these all in one place, is another first.

This sees the first of many new modules set to expand Blantyre Project’s online archive massively throughout July and August 2017 ahead of a massive announcement about the long term future of the website. Please note, website expansion is secondary, behind a primary focus on new planned books with current open drafts and a continued drive to create fresh, interesting & informative new content here every day.

The module can be freely accessed here at the top left of the website. Enjoy.

  1. Wilma and her parents lived next door to my sister Alice. Perfect neighbours and a lovely family. I remember Wilma from Calder Street school.
    Chatted with her parents a few times over the fence on some of my trips. 1982 when I was back for the Junior Cup final, which of course, the ‘VICS won! A bit more than a chat, more like a blether!

  2. I am in touch with Hughina now and again via e mail, I met up with Hughina a few years ago for lunch at the Avonbridge in Hamilton during one of my trips. A lovely lady.
    She has 2 sons who share my passion in football.
