57716: Bridge of Weir, Renfrewshire

The village of Bridge of Weir is located to the west of Glasgow. Historically, its biggest industry was leather, and at its productivity peak the small village supported three tanneries. The leather industry still survives although on a much smaller scale. Bridge of Weir has become something of a commuter haven, and has achieved a reputation of relative affluence similar to Bearsden in the north of Glasgow and Newton Mearns in the south.
