Drumry

An area which, since the 1930s, has been split between West Dunbartonshire and Glasgow City, Drumry is principally an eastern suburb of Clydebank, but with a smaller section lying to the northeast of the Great Western Road forming part of Drumchapel (Glasgow). The area grew up around Drumry Castle, also known as the Peel of Drumry, a three-storey 16th-century tower-house, the ruins of which were demolished in 1959. Development began before the First World War, augmented by houses for workers at the Singer Sewing Machine Plant which had been turned over to munitions production. The streets in North Drumry are named after the National Bard and places and people associated with him, for example Robert Burns Avenue, Kirkoswald Drive and Ellisland Avenue, while the streets of South Drumry are named after Clydebank-built ships, such as Queen Mary Avenue, York Street and Hood Street. Between North and South Drumry is Drumry railway station. Drumry Primary School lies on Abbotshall Avenue in Drumchapel.
