Flower Delivery to Blackhill – An Area in North-East Glasgow, Scotland
In the Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland of Frances Groome, Blackhill is described as “...a place in Barony parish, Lanarkshire, on the Monkland Canal, 2 miles E of Glasgow.” The area was built on a country golf course close to the Monkland Canal, a canal stretching 12 ¼ miles long that was designed to bring coal from the Monklands mining areas to Glasgow. Those who lived in Blackhill in the early days recall their summers consisting of country rambles starting from the Molendinar Burn to the loch located at Hogganfield.
A sense of community was strong in Blackhill due to the enclosed nature of the place, as well as industry, railways and main roads which cut off the area from other districts. Blackhill was located close to a gasworks and distillery which didn't do favours in terms of health. As such, the area was known as “being difficult to let.”
In addition, a prison called HM Prison Barlinnie was located close by which further added to the negative outlook on the place. Over the years, Blackhill has been redeveloped: older housing has been demolished and replaced with much more improved ones.
The Glasgow City Council purchased Blackhill (which was then part of Lanarkshire) in the 19th century to build a prison. However, central government (after given control of prisons by new legislation) picked the nearby Barlinnie as the site for the new prison. As a result, Blackhill was developed into a golf course.
The said golf course was then moved to Cumbernauld Road under the Slum Clearance Act 1935 which resulted in Blackhill being developed for housing. Before the Second World War, around 1200 houses were built and most of its residents were from nearby Garngad.
As years passed, the reputation of Blackhill fell into decline due to a combination of drugs, organised crime and the rehousing of troublesome tenants to the area. A lot of the run down streets were demolished in the 1970s as part of the areas regeneration.
By the 1990s, however, life in Blackhill remained grim because it suffered from lack of maintenance. A lot of the residents attempted to rebuild their homes after being inspired by the events in Roystonhill. The New Housing Association, which helped with the regeneration of Bridgeton and Calton, were sympathetic to the cause of Blackhill residents and included them into their association.
Since then, the Blackhil tenements were demolished to be replaced by low-rise family homes. Although the cottage flats still remain (part of the old scheme), they have been updated to fit with standards of the 21st century.
