Although i was only 11 years old at the time of the Raine Place explosion in May 1978, i remember it well, it was truly shocking. Me and my sister Sonja were at the Guides in the church hall and we were rehearsing for a show, whilst on the stage we heard a huge rumbling noise and lots of banging and people screaming and shouting. The hall was quickly evacuated and it was then that we had discovered the terrible explosion. We (the Junners) lived in Ryedale Place at the time and my brother Colin drove an ice cream van round the scheme he was actually at Raine Place at the time of the incident thankfully he was unhurt, i remember a man named Frazer, cant mind his first name tho, he lived in one of the houses that was involved in the explosion sadly he was at home at the time however he was rescued. A few of my pals lived in Raine place and all were evacuated. My older brother John assisted in the aid of rescuing the trapped people along with his mates, i think it was caused by lead piping being stripped from the roofs of the tenement houses by youngsters. Yes it was months that Raine Place lay with a huge gap in the houses, all us youngsters thought this was amazing as you could see St Pius primary school from our house little do we know now just how lucky we were not to have been involved in the explosion. Sadly now all of this area in Drumchapel has gone, just grass land, Waverley Secondary School, which i attended, is now a site for houses i believe. Memories last forever though best of luck to all who remain there.

Wullie Jones,

That's the exact same feeling lots of kids, and most of their parents, who moved to 'theDrum' in the late 1950's had. It was a brilliant new place for anyone to live and despite it's shortcomings: limited access to shoppping mainly; it's new inhabitants were a happy lot.

I lived in Airgold Drive and went to St Sixtus School and its many annexes and, although the winters could get dreary and cold and dark, I absolutely loved the summer months when we kids stayed out in the streets to play past ten o'clock at night.

How good was that ? Can kids do that anywhere in Glasgow, or in the world, these days ?

I lived in Dunkenny Road (and earlier up the hill on a street near the water tower), from '75 to '99. I see the part near the church is getting boarded up ready for demolition.

I have some good pictures of Kingsridge during it's closure, including the inferno in the gym as the kids got in to take revenge on it! I also ventured in with my dad and looking back that was pretty dangerous - hordes of kids roaming around with sticks to beat glass out and trash the place.

Once I scan them in, I'll provide them to the forum. Also I have good pics from inside Drumry, after it was closed off..they did a good job of demolishing that building well before the bulldozers arrived!

I wonder what will become of the shopping centre now - it's an absolute shambles.

Hi Longbeach, my husband moved from Maryhill to Drumchapel in the early 50's. He went to Cloandyke Primary then Hamilton Crescent in Partick. I had an evening job in the Lincoln Inn when it opened at first, he used to drink there and in The Peel (had his stag night in The Peel). We also used the Black Bull, Milngavie and also The Boulevard Hotel, it was the only place you could go for a drink on a Sunday because the pubs were closed. smile.gif
