This morning I went out to get replenish my portfolio of gravestone images for my separate ancestry themed blog. The Cemetery was located next to a playing field in Thornliebank where two games of schoolboy rugby were in process so I took the opportunity to take some images.

The game of Rugby dates from 1823 and has two versions: League and Union. More information can be found on this web page

Watching these games kindled memories of my schooldays-and rolling round in the mud in the cold and wet, which was no doubt very character forming!

The towers in the background of the first image are tenanted and represent social housing for middle/low income families.

I can arrange tours to sporting events.
