Temple Farm on Crow Rd was not technically a farm.
It was a milk bottling plant. It had a dairy shop, and delivered milk to houses in a wide area by horses and carts. It had a big house and stables. The Farm was owned by James Pirie.

Two children Ann and Jim.

James also had a farm on Bearsden Rd (Switchback). close to Canniseburn Toll.

This was a real Farm with milking cows. However Pirie gathrered milk from Farms all over.

The other Farm was renrwd.

The truck driver was called Rudi, a German POW.

I moved to Temple Gardens in 1936, I was 30 days old. I grew up playing in Piries, delivering and collecting milk. The big house was bought by the Valenties, who owned the ice cream shop facing on Crow Rd. The Farm on Bearden Rd, was part of Garscube Estate, owned by Glasgow University.

The dairy in Linden St was the SCWS. Never Piries.

Jim Pirie became a professional Golfer. Gordon Moir ( formally 13 Temple Gdns).
Email Address:- Gordonchris@blueyonder.co.uk

Gordon My father was Jim Pirie who moved from Temple to Balfron, the Jim Pirie who was the golfer was the son of George Pirie at Chapelton Farm behind Kessington Hall, back then the Pirie family all worked as one.
Rudi the POW has family in bearsden .

There was a farm owned by the Fulton family on the site where Temple Gardens now stands.

I lived in Temple Gardens in the 1970s and '80s and used to visit an old man called Mr Horatio Walker who lived in Hilton Gardens. He was brought up in Temple and was a mine of information about the history of the area and showed me many old photographs, documents and newspaper cuttings. It is a pity that he never wrote a book as he had enough material for one.



How do you know this and can you contact me directly please ?

Hi Lennox

The exact place you are looking for is the first house under the railway bridge on the left heading for Milngavie switchback road
It was a small holding with horses and pigs my relation used to deliver manure to surrounding houses from the farm hope this helps feel free to get back to me

Cheers
Derek.
