Travellers move to East End site
This is how the Dumbarton is shaping up in a new portfolio of camera shots taken from Dumbarton Rock by East End photographer Jim Crosthwaite. They show many of the remarkable changes that are now taking place in the town. Bill Heaney writes: What a great view. Look across from Sandpoint to the other side of the river to Castle Street and the open space that has been created by the demolition of the distillery. It’s crying out for an inspired piece of architecture, a town square or something equally prestigious. And what are we getting from the SNP administration on our council? A Lidl supermarket which planning officials say is not sufficiently attractive or of sufficient quality to be there. But the SNP council do. Why, oh why? By teh way, look at the photograph top left to see where the travelling people have moved to. That’s the field behind Castle Street and the Denny Tank Museum. And that explains why the police were partolling the River Leven in their boat last week.
