From There… To Here

The social history of Wester Hailes

A mystery cleared up!

A couple of weeks ago we highlighted a mystery surrounding the apparent re-naming of Gillespie Gardens when it was first built.  Caroline Campbell got in touch in response to say that she has lived in Wester Hailes since 1970.  She remembers that when this set of houses was first built, no-one seemed to have a name for them.  There were a few to choose from and Alcorn Square was the name finally picked by the developers.
