pit rows cardenden
This is another old photo taken in the Cardenden area
It used to be where Cluny park now stands you can see Harleys farm in the background where we used to get our milk and Carden Cresent which are still there today I was born here in number thirteen front row .
The row running down the page where the two men are standing was the double block and Chrissie Harley's shop was half way down.
You can also see part of the front row and the middle row.
The railway line is just in the foreground and we used to sit at the attic window as kids and watch the steam trains go by with the coal from the pits as you had Brighills and Bowhill colliery on this line not to mention the Genny Grey the minto and a few others which lay towards Lochgelly and Lochore therefore this was the main line for the parish and still is today.
I think it is important to keep these old pics in circulation with as much info as possible as it is part of our heritage.
