Plot for redevelopment
Plot for redevelopment
The signs identify this as "Plot 5", acquired by the council for redevelopment, which had not yet taken place when this picture was taken; likewise with "Plot 3", shown in NS3978 : Plot for redevelopment.

However, at the time these pictures were taken, an area that had earlier been signposted as "Plot 1" was under development: NS3978 : New workshops under construction.
Vale of Leven Industrial Estate :: NS3978

Of the very extensive lands that came to be associated with Strathleven House Link a portion was compulsorily purchased by the Board of Trade in 1947, and was developed by Scottish Industrial Estates Ltd in 1948 to form the Vale of Leven Industrial Estate. At the estate's inception, Westclox Ltd and Burroughs Adding Machines had factories here, but they are now gone. Polaroid, a later arrival, lasted until 2017. The estate is used by a number of smaller businesses, and there are some vehicle depots.
