Would you expect to find a WW2 musket ball in your garden in Balmore? Or know that Bishopbriggs is home to the last cut nail manufacturing plant in Britain? Or, how about, learning that tokens were handed out to the ‘worthy’ before being permitted to partake in communion during mass in 1837? These and many other fascinating stories were told through the remarkable objects brought along by the community of Baldernock.A wonderful Wednesday was had by all in Baldernock Parish Church Hall this week where we took part in a fascinating and enjoyable evening bringing local history to life. A range of stories told through local objects brought along by members of the community told the tales of life gone by in this fascinating place. From the last will and testament of a linen and flax weaver dated 1603 to the communion tokens of Rev John Pollock and the nails holding their 18th century buildings together this provided a fascinating insight into life gone by in this picturesque community in East Dunbartonshire. Thank you to all who came along, and to Alison for the delicious cakes, each object was photographed on the night and will form part of a community timeline detailing life in East Dunbartonshire.
