On my journey to work from Motherwell to Mount Florida, Glasgow, I change trains at a place called Newton, near Cambuslang. While waiting for my connection I saw this lovely sky. At Newton the sky always looks quite dramatic.
I was wondering why, and think the reason is that there are no buildings in the area to obscure the view. This may be due to the fact that from 1873 to 1979 Hallside Steel Works was situated there and the land may still be contaminated.
The area around Cambuslang had a number of steel-making works, but most of them were closed in the 1970’s and 80’s.
