I was heading down the M77 near Corkerhill and spotted this on the other side of the road. It got me thinking as to how many farm buildings still exist within the Glasgow area? I didn't see any coo's or sheep nearby though so it's probably just a private house these days.

The nearest farm to me when I was a nipper in the 1970's/80's was Mitchell's Dairy Farm at Bankhead between Croftfoot and Rutherglen but it only supplied milk to the doorstep in classic style milk bottles.

I don't think they had their own dairy herd by then and the steep fields that ran down to Bankhead Road where we held the Annual Winter Olympic's The Boys Downhill Luge Event on a tea tray or black bin bag. The winner was the person that made it onto Bankhead Road and lived! It's since been redeveloped for housing in the mid 1980's depriving generations of kids of Winter Olympic glory Glasgow style.

The footbridge across the M77 was for the cow to access the fields across from the farm.

Not seen many cows recently but when the motorway first opened they were a regular site crossing the bridge.

The farm at the top end of holmbyre road still exsists the family still live in it but i do believe the land is now council owned which is evident what with the dirt roads now being tarmaced

I can remember a farm in Carntyne, in the late forties. It was bounded by Carntyne Hall Rd., Inverlieth St., Moorfoot St., and possibly Myerside St. Even after Carntyne Ind. Estate was built, the farmhouse still stood and was used as changing rooms for footballers using pitches built on the remains of the farm in the fifties. God knows what's there now.

A fairly new care home, a steel works and a fairly large chunk of empty land that looks like it was once part of the works

I've been doing a wee bit of genealogy recently and I found one of my relatives was born in"Polmadie Farm" in Hutchesontown, in 1893.
I've checked out old maps of the area, but zilch.
Anyone know where this might have been ?

There's a 'Polmadie Park Farm' on the 1893 OS town plan, SE side of Polmadie Road across from the ends of Polmadie St and Calder St. Looks like it was still there on the c1920 map but isn't named.

Yeh, well spotted Streap. It's right in the corner of the map.
I missed that one.
