Lawyer in Balfron
In Scotland, just 26km north of Glasgow, lies the village of Balfron. With such a small distance between this major city, Balfron acts as a dormitory town for the many workers who commute daily to Glasgow. The village name has an interesting origin that comes from an old story that children in the village were taken by wolves while the men were away and thus, the townspeople were in a great state of mourning. From then on, the village was known as “Balfron”, which in Gaelic means the “village of mourning”.
The village of Balfron was very small until 1789, when a cotton mill was built by Robert Dunmore on the banks of River Endrick. The village expanded from 55 people to almost a thousand in the space of a year. The legacy of this expansion can be seen in the street names that are cotton related such as Cotton Street and Spinner Street.
Balfron’s most famous resident is Alexander Thomson who was a pioneering architect who lived in the 19th century. Many of his ideas came from the architecture and buildings found in Ancient Greece. However, it was not until the 1950s that his work was given its dues and is now often cited to be one of the greatest architects of the Western world in the last 200 years.
