Old Newmains and the villages around Wishaw

Author : Lewis Hutton

ISBN : 9781840330700
Cover : paperback
Price : £9.00

Telling the story of the villages that grew up around Wishaw (of which Newmains was the biggest), this wee book juxtaposes peaceful village scenes with stark pictures of heavy industrialisation. Many of the featured villages had rural beginnings, but were industrialised in a major way from the mid-nineteenth century when nearby coal reserves were mined commercially, generating employment. Cleland, Bellside, Cambusnethan, Newmains, Morningside, Bonkle, Allanton, Waterloo and Overtown are featured.
