To the south west of the village lies Eaglesham Moor. This is covenanting country, where, in 1685, two men were shot dead when an ”illegal” outdoor service, a coventicle, was surprised by government troops. Another military leader landed on the moor in 1941; Hitler’s deputy, Rudolph Hess, on his self-imposed mission to negotiate peace. (Courtesy of the Sunday Herald 04 Sep 99)
The moor and wind farm keeps drawing me back, there are Iron age and Bronze age sites, ruined steadings and old 2nd world war bunkers too. Then there is the windfarm, the largest in the UK, which has spawned over 135 km of trails and paths. These images taken around the moor and its perimeters, over a number of years, are the results of my fascination with the whole area.
