Galloway Past Picture

editorial image

This is an interesting photograph from the Galloway Gazette files in light if recent events.

It shows Newton Stewart’s Riverside Road badly flooded. We have no date of when the picture was taken but we reckon the mid 1950s. If you look up the road you can see that the wall that gave way last month didn’t even exist then, but a much higher wall did just further south.

If you have any information on this please email Louise Kerr at
