As was so often the case the prefabs were built on open space which seems to have returned to open space today. However some of the roads remain on the ground.

I wonder why the last 'prefab' is breaking ranks?

St Mirren F.C.s former home - Westmarch - 1883-1894 After four years at Thistle Park, Saints were on the move again, this time to Westmarch. The ground was very close to Thistle Park on Greenhill Road and also near to the location of the current St Mirren Park. The first match played at Westmarch was on the 25th August 1883 when the, then, mighty Queens Park came calling and were sent home with a 2-1 defeat. Over the 11 seasons at Westmarch Saints played in 54 competitive matches, including the newly formed Scottish League Championship which started in 1890. © www.stmirren.info https://www.facebook.com/#!/paisleyoorweetoon

That's Muirdykes Cres bossjock. Ardmore Oval was where the football pitches are, further round the bend.

Top left corner -the tenements of Craigielea, and above those a corner of the reasonably new Ferguslie Park 'Housing Sceme'. The white houses to the right again are Prefabs,later replaced by precast concrete blocks of flats and now demolished, the ground lain to waste.



The Branch line running from the main Glasgow-Gourock Line was the former Paisley and Barrhead District Railway,which then became part of the Caledonian Railway. It was known as the 'Dummy Railway' because although it encircled Paisley and branched to Barrhead, it never actually ran any passenger service, infact stopping short of rejoining the main line east of Paisley Gilmour St (see http://homepage.ntlworld.com/sealed/paisley/railpage/pbdr.htm for full interesting history). The line also served the former Rootes Car plant and Pressed Steel plant, home of the Hillman Imp, until the late 70's. The football ground in the foreground was I believe the home of Glenvale United.
