The Sighthill Inn on the old Calder Road 1963

The Sighthill Inn on the old Calder Road 1963

About this memory

Situated opposite the junction of Sighthill View and the Old Calder Road. Opposite, the large white building is the old Esso garage and next to that is Sighthill Bowling Club.
During the War there was a Public Air Raid Shelter near this spot. The Health Centre stands just out of picture on the right.
The buildings of Sighthill Farm are in the foreground.
Partially hidden in the trees is the Doctors House.
(A close up view of the Inn is to be found elsewhere on the Internet)

Many thanks to A. Mann for permission to use the photograph.
