1908 Auchentibber Quoiting Green

Instead, the men, mostly miners play quoits in their self made field, situated near the junction of Parkneuk and Auchentibber Road.

I recently went back to visit this site, something I like doing in Winter, for the current greenery and growth dies back, and its possible to see the level former playing field. This is what it looks like now.
