Bishopton is a village in Renfrewshire, Scotland. It is situated a few miles west of Erskine.HistoryBishopton was originally in the Parish of Erskine. It was two hamlets that combined to make the village of Bishopton in 1840. The hamlets were called Blackstown and Easter Rossland. The name Bishopton came from a nearby house known as Bishopton House. A famous family called the Brisbanes lived here. The house became a convent known as Good Shephard Centre and latterly Cora Foundation.The former ROF siteA large explosive manufacturing factory was once sited in Bishopton. The ROF Bishopton, was opened during World War II on farm land, acquired by compulsory purchase order. It was situated on the other side of the railway line running through Bishopton. Over 2,000 acres (8 km²) of land from up to seven farms was used to build the factory. The land included Dargavel House, which still survives. The southern end of the site included the majority of the land formerly used by the First World War National Filling Factory, Georgetown. The ROF was privatised in 1984, being sold to British Aerospace (now BAE Systems). It has since scaled down and shut most of the site.After privatisation the MOD Police moved out and the former MOD Police Social Club at HolmPark, and its adjoining sports field, became part of Bishopton. The former MOD Police houses at both HolmPark and Rossland Crescent were sold off to private buyers. Bishopton's Medical Centre was built in a corner of the sports field, opposite the shops.
