The start of the Acredales, Longcram and Chalybeate housing just off Pencaitland Road.

If you can't make out where this was taken, its taken at the bottom of the Fairway(Clerkington) housing looking along Pencaitland Road towards the Town.

This will be mid 1970s as the first houses were occupied in 1979.

Was asked recently about a photo of the Maltings housing off Mill Wynd. Here's an aerial shot showing, from left to right, the swimming pool carpark (opened 1974), the porta-cabins where today's Squash courts are (thought to be temporary Adult training centre facilities, hence the ramps) then the Maltings as they were.

No date, but the swimming pool was opened 1974 and the Squash courts opened in 1978.
