The outside of the Lagoon Centre, Paisley.
The rink in Paisley's Lagoon Centre is finished for good. The venue hosted the 2005 World Women's Curling Championship, and was closed shortly thereafter when it was found that frost heave had damaged the building structure. That was three years ago. Would it ever reopen?
That question has now been answered - no! The Paisley Daily Express has the whole story here.
Curling clubs which used the rink have found new homes at Greenacres and Braehead in the years since Paisley closed.
