Smelly Chimney

James M posted on the 12/07/2016 9:47:37 AM

Do any of the old-timers remember a tall chimney in the area of the Bluevale flats that used to belch the most disgusting smelly smoke? I seem to recall it was knocked down in the late 70s early 80s.

Any idea what it was?

My granny lived in Whitevale flats and I remember it. I think it sat where the Home Bargains shop is now. It was horrible. There were a lot of s****yards around there at the time. According to really old maps on the NLS site, there were chemical works there at one point. I think it was taken down in the early 80s.

Hi James,

If you are referring to the area around the bottom of Millerston Street (The old Glenpark road - back of retail park) This company was whom NORIT UK relocated some 20+ years ago to Cambuslang.
