The Burnbank bus Depot at High Blantyre road

Not so long ago you could drive for five minutes in any direction and you would be able to buy petrol!
Garages, petrol stations & petrol pumps were everywhere in the town.

In the picture is a Chieftain bus stopping at a petrol pump at High Blantyre road in Burnbank, it is ready for it’s journey up to East Kilbride probably via the Blantyre back roads. You can see the parish church in the background and the buildings to the right are still standing, however the land where the bus depot and pump are situated are now landscaped, Picture courtesy of David Laurie.
