Memories of Motherwell
Carmen Quarry Shabby BraesGarleston
My grandfather James McCormack was brought up at this address and I am trying to find where exactly this is. He was a North Motherwell man; can anyone can point me in the right direction? I think it might be Jerviston in Motherwell but not sure.
Hi all, I used to live on Easter Moffet golf course and attended Motherwell central school, my father was the club master in the early 1950s (Jack Potter). I used to go fishing down on the River Clyde between Motherwell and Hamilton near the Hamilton Mausoleum. I also fished in the Strathclyde Loch, I don't think it was called that when I was young. I also belonged to the Motherwell Scouts in Airbles Street near the bing on the left side going down the road. As I got older I fished more up the river near Muirhouse Towers area which was all woods in them days. I will post more memories as I remember them.

Iam pleased to have found this website. I lived in New Stevenston for over 50 years and share my memories on Friends Reunited Site...after opening up a group named New Stevenston Born and Bred 50s, 60s and 70s. It also covers surrounding areas. We also hold a lot of photos from down memory lane of villages, schools and landmarks.
Great Laughs at Taylor High
Great times at Taylor High with Mick Logan, Kev Hastings and Mark O'hara etc.. I remember the time I went up on the flats (across from Taylor High) and got a big chunk of wet moss from a drain. I waited for Mick Logan to pass, then shouted his name, he looked up - then bingo! I let the moss go.. direct hit, right slap bang on the coupon, what a shot - laughed for weeks after it!! He took it in good fun though, and that's what mates do. I live in Ireland now, and I'll never forget where I came from.
My memories are of my grandparents staying in their little house on Biggar Road, my sisters and I would walk down a lane which was called the Metal Raw, travellers camped there. We would keep going till we reached my aunty's prefab, other cousins' sisters would walk back and play in Masons slaughterhouse. Our aunt also had a farm on Biggar Road. Happy days. Newarthill was very small at that time, bakers and butchers came in vans to sell their wares.
