Does anyone know about the grassed area behind The Swinging Arm Pub near Woodside? It's fenced off and appears to be a bit of a dumping ground for people who can't be bothered to go to the tip, but I wondered what used to be there? On the river walls at the bottom it looks like there might have been an old entrance to a dock perhaps, and there are some really old street lamps in situ but I haven't really got a clue.

Cheers for that, knew I would get what I was after on here. Really amazed that the wall at the bow of the dock wall is still there.

Lived on Church Street 25 years ago.The Swinging Arm was The Royal Hotel. The bar customers were all from that area,plus some scousers who worked at Lairds.Some of the crew of the Navy Ships coming into Lairds lived in the hotel.It was a great place to live.

Hi everyone,I was wondering if anyone could tell me what the houses in Rose Brae would have been like, and would it probably been the people that worked in the docks that lived there....Very curious as my daughter goes to the gym that is right opposite were Rose Brae would have been. I believe the gym was a bakery, and before that I have no idea. Would ideally like to build up a picture of the area to be displayed in the gym. If anyone can help, what did the gym start out as, what else has it been over the years, would it have serviced a purpose for the docks??

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Maisie

I don't think there were any houses on Rose Brae, one side had sheds for the Iron Works and the other was the end of the gardens from the properties on Church St.

Gym was the Shaftesbury Boys Club
