The Denny Wall and Victoria Hall

The date is a guess, but because picture #409 shows a horse in the same place, we've gone for 1939.

This is probably the view my sister, Ingrid, gets - or would have 70 years ago! - from her new house on the Denny. Bit nicer than the fence!

The horse looks very much like Patsy (milk pony) who was very often in the football field. Also the roof on the Byre looks fairly new, and could be the one replaced after the damage caused by the January gale of 1953. This is only a comment, and 1939 could well be correct.

A lot of people would like to see the wall put back as the fence looks so ugly! All we need is a committee, a lot of stone and a few thousand quid. Any ideas? Would make a great project for the town. The trees look great too!

Am sure the farmers would gladly give loads of stones off their fields every year to build it.

I would love to see the wall as well but I bet the stupid rules with health and safety would have something to say as usual

Who in their right minds would pull down a wall like that and replace it with a cheap fence? Anyone got a photo of said fence? Was it a dry-stone dyke?

My cousin and I were just talking about the wall round the park a couple of weeks ago, great to see a photo of it. We had lots of fun playing on that wall when we were young,walking along the top of it and climbing into the trees to watch any football matches that happened to be on. We would also hang upside down with our legs hanging onto the branches never giving a thought to the fact that the branch could have snapped. Whose idea was it to take the wall down anyway? The fence lookes rubbish compared to the wall.
