An aerial photograph taken in January 1959 by the RAF, showing the Darnley and Deaconsbank areas .

All the contours of the snowy landscape can be seen in this beautiful image. Waulkmill Glen Reservoir lies in the bottom left hand corner with the dark outline of the woods of Waulkmill Glen to the north. The Brock Burn winds emerges from the glen and winds through the fields to the north on which the Darnley and Deaconsbank housing estates were subsequently built. Nitshill Road cuts diagonally across the top of the photograph, from Nitshill on the left to Arden at the junction with Stewarton Road on the right.
Priesthill can be seen at the top. Anyone for a snow fight?

Arden has become one of Glasgows worst areas nowadays due to teenage hooligans using drugs and drink to excess, the crime rate has gone through the roof in the last ten years or so and the government have just about taken away every local amenity that youngsters could have used to break up the boredom ........ I dont even think there is a community centre anymore. There were a few really good youth football teams as well but I dont even think here are any football clubs at all there now.

Its a same really because this sort of situation only breeds contemp among the people who live there and the lifestyle becomes a dog eat dog existence.

I lived in Carnwadric for a number of years and rden wasn't nearly as bad as it seems to be now. I hope I am wrong and maybe lately thngs have improved.

Hi Bob,
It's a shame what's happened to Arden over the years,I was very young when I lived there but I remember that time fondly.
Everyone in the close was like an Auntie or an Uncle to me,I remember running around the field behind my close and enjoying every second of it,being so young I never knew of, or saw any trouble back then (late 60's).
Sadly I went on You-tube and have seen many a video of the area and it's population,it's sad to see what was once a lovely community slip into such a slum and I'm sorry for using that word,as it seems to be over run with junkies & Gang's.
Thankfully I have my memories of a much nicer place,when a wee 3yr auld never had to worry about going to the shops alone to get some sweeties.

The easiest way to Roukie wiz through Arden, It could be a bit dodgy if ye bumped intae the wrang people. Me and ma pals met a bunch of boys fae Arden at the burn wance. We played fitba wi' them at the pitch near the railway in Priesthill. They invited us tae play a return match at Carnwadric Park the next Sunday,which we did. We never made it a regular event though.

Hi,

My Gran and granda used to live in Kilmuir road, Thornlibank, with my great grandparents.
We visited them on our holidays every year and I used to love going there, they lived on the top floor and we used to run down the stairs when the ice cream van came, and buy a double-nougat.
So sad to hear it is now such a dump, I am only pleased they are not here to see it.

I lived in Kilmuir road near Kilvaxter from 1962- 1979. Place was full of diddys and wanna be hard men even then. But these guys ended up as lifes failures. I go back now and then looking for some of the sad sacks who so very proudly used to bully me. I have been fortunate enough to have been able to migrate to Whitcraigs, but still remain friends with some girls i knew back then. The bullies are too insignificant to name. Small fish, small pond, small minds.

Thank God my 4 kids need not go through that sesspit
