You are here: Hidden Stonehouse | Stonehouse Elephants

There are a number of places or things within the village that aren't obvious or well-known, but not for much longer!

On Murray Drive, in the middle of a Stonehouse estate sits this family of 4 baby elephants. The elephants are made of concrete and are used by local children when playing.
Once visible throughout the west of Scotland, these elephants seem to be facing extinction faster than their genuine counterparts, although someone is looking after our local pachyderms as can be evidenced by the repair to the trunk of the last elephant.
It's a wonder that these specimens have not been removed by the 'health and safety brigade' as a child could get a nasty gash if thrown.
So enjoy them while we still have them...
