The social history of Wester Hailes

Gale Force Damage

High winds are causing havoc in parts of the country today. Back in 1986, Wester Hailes was hit by westerly winds that ripped off the roof of the new Murrayburn Community Centre.  Wester Hailes has had its share of bad weather damage over the years, with snow, flooding and ice creating damage on buildings and roads.  With its particular location, high winds can create damaging effects.  The new centre had only been open for  a week before the damage caused it to shut for three days.  You can read more about this story by clicking here.
