I really still don't know where the houses with an address for Rocky Knowe could have been - but I have a theory - when the new houses were built in 1936, they named one Townhead Road, on the east side of the Public Park. However Townhead Road previously existed (in the 1895 map) where Parkend Road now is. So old Townhead Road was renamed - but could (at least part of it) east of Gladstone Road leading up to the double bridge across the railway, have been known for some time as Rocky Knowe. I wonder if anyone who has lived in Parkend Road and seen the deeds of their house has any views on this idea. Sorry but it has always been a bug in my brain having spent all my time growng up so close to a place and not knowing where it was.down south wrote: ↑Sat Oct 30, 2021 3:27 pm We've had some discussion of this before, Scott; you yourself marked where you thought it was on this map :
But if it was there, it must also have originally referred to a wider area, because there's a post here which stated that Saltcoats Victoria used to have Rockyknowe Park for a ground, but the council took it for housing in 1936.
Also this would have led across the railway bridge to the old Saltcoats Vics park known as Rocky Knowe.
