Coatbridge

... welcome to a Centre of Industrial Heritage in The Clyde Valley, Scotland.


Drumpellier Country Park.

 

At the turn of the last century, Coatbridge was the eight largest town in Scotland. It was formed by the amalgamation of a number of local villages. Coatbridge's prominence earlier this century was due to the iron industry in the town. Today Coatbridge boasts a number of attractions, including "Scotland's noisiest museum!".


Summerlee Heritage Trust.
Coatbridge, like Airdrie, is in the Monklands district of the Clyde Valley. "Monklands" is derived from when King Malcom IV presented the Cistercian Monks of Newbattle with land in 1162. Weaving became the main occupation in the 18th Century, before which the Monklands district was largely used for farming. The coal and iron industries grew in the late 1800s resulting in the population increasing.
