Linn Park

Before i got researching I thought i'd save a bit of time & ask.

In Linn Park taking nature trail from snuff mill bridge, you eventually come to steel gates (blocked) which lead to down to river. There is evidence of old buildings anybody know what they were for? My best guess would be its old paper mill but could be wrong in that assumption.

What the fook is this for???







ps at edge of this building is really wierd water feature. Stu took video so maybe post later

It is the old mill that's down there. Not entirely sure if it was a paper mill although the name of the nearby bridge may give you the answer.

There's a thread on another forum about it as there was a wee visit and there should also be some past presents there as well.

This thread just made me wonder ... where does the name Linn come from?

Linn Park

I do note some consternation as to what the "fook" some items are near the old paper mill at Millholm.
Approximately 25 years ago a local garden centre owner who had premises in Muirend across from the HBOS branch in Clarkston Road took over the area around the paper mill as a garden centre. It was upgraded and was really smart. Lots of plants were brought in.
You can now see what happened as plants grow wild, he went bankrupt.
I drove down often and I bought some stuff from him. A lot of it was just left.

The Snuff Mill Bridge

Great shot...
Been a few changes round there since i was last there.
Stuball

Horse and carts gone? Fires gone out and the buildings arent looking post-apocalyptic? The bridge sirens and trolls been evicted?

Lovely shot of the bridge!  Brings back memories of trips to Linn Park from yonks ago!

When I used to go to any other park I would walk in a gate, but for Linn Park I had to cross the bridge over the river.  It was like entering a different world.  Ah nostalgia

Glad I could bring something back for you :)

All thon shot needs is some Orks crossing the bridge and it's spot on.
