Does anyone have any information regarding Malcolm lane in the 1910's or 1920's, Watters family lived there.  If there are any old photos or website links I can check for referencing

ah no worries at all :)

if you find any information at all that would be great as I am aware that the taylor family were from those streets then led onto become watters family who continued to live around those streets.

hope we find something and i know your not sure if Watters is the correct name you are thinking about but its always good to query

hi john, that could very well been my family aswell, i know some watters lived in sinclair street around the corner from eastleigh cres.

did you know any watters personally?

No, sorry Bud, I did not know the Watters personally and I wasn't even sure if the name was correct. It was in the mid to late 1950's.

Spent part of summers up there.
We just called it the Glen also.
Officially?.Castlereagh Glen or Cregagh Glen.
Use too be an old Church at entrance..
Itís right beside Mc Caughan Park..on The Knockbreda Dual Carriageway .
Recall The Swing over The Ravine..seemed massive at the time.
Robbie Burns was the daredevil,he would climb tree,creep onto branch and tie the rope.
Waterfall was a just up stream.
