The Big Blow down Millarston


Millarston High rise flats are to come down in the early hours of the morning between Sunday morning 3am till 6am final confirmation is to be seen but these times seem to suit with the main Railway line right beside the Flats being the main obstacle to a successful blow-down.

We wish Reigart all the very best and wish them a successful and safe blow-down and hopefully they don’t wake too many people up lol

For anyone going to see the flats coming down hopefully we will probably meet up and it doesn’t rain..

Look out tomorrow for some video and photos of the demolition.

So if you have taken a picture of Paisley or have an old school photo from long ago then write an email to and we will send you directions on how to upload to our gallery and start contributing to the Paisley community website today.


There is always something new to know.


I have been doing this website for nearly ten years now and I always learn new things about Paisley, I love hearing story’s about the town and its past. Just yesterday I read somewhere a few facts about Paisley.

One is that Paisley is home to one of the United Kingdom’s biggest ghost railways. The unfinished 15 mile, seven station Paisley and Barrhead district railway became known as the ‘dummy railway’ “you can still see the viaduct next to tesco in Barrhead. When I was a kid growing up in Ferguslie we used to call the Railway going from the Chrysler plant across Ferguslie Main road “the station used to be just where the old Aldi store was formerly Lipton’s garage “do you remember that” at the Arches, The dummy Railway.

What I am getting at is if you have looked over this website and thought to yourself I wonder why he doesn’t have this in or that in this website, then its probably that I don’t know about it so please write me an email and give me as much information as possible in it and I shall publish it in our new OOR TOON section which I will start back up again and also show the old messages from past contributors as the stories are fascinating. I like others love to hear about the town I live in and its past “good or bad” so what are you waiting for email me……
