Radnor Park

A district of Clydebank, Radnor Park lies a mile (1.5 km) north northwest of the town centre. It developed in the early years of the 20th century in association with the former Singer Sewing Machine Factory, which had opened at Kilbowie to the south in 1885, and for the ship-yards. Tenements here, known as the Holy City, were the work of Robert McAlpine, known as 'Concrete Bob' (1847 - 1934). Radnor Park was particularly badly damaged during the Clydebank Blitz and considerably rebuilt following the Second World War, with new public housing.

Clydebank High School (1947) is located here between Shelley Drive and Janetta Street.
