Bothwellhaugh Village

Strathclyde, South Lanarkshire

Bothwellhaugh forms part of the Strathclyde Country Park, next to the towns of Motherwell and Hamilton in Lanarkshire. For eight decades from 1884 until the 1960s the Hamilton Palace Colliery operated by the Bent Colliery Company produced coal. A village was developed to provide accommodation for the staff at the Hamilton Palace colliery, both the colliery and village disappeared in the 1960s.
