Community Action Lanarkshire is creating a project team to kick-start new Heritage Project

 

A three yearlong National Lottery Heritage Funded project is coming to life and looking for members from each of the five communities of Caldercruix, Greengairs, Harthill, Plains and Upperton to create a Heritage Forum. The first phase of this project will seek to uncover and share what makes each community unique, from historic buildings and local stories, to landscapes and biodiversity, the aim is to leave no stone unturned and celebrate the diverse histories of all five villages. Supporting communities so they are poised to celebrate their heritage however they choose, from events, new trails, monuments or documenting oral histories.

 

Heritage Project Officer, Hannah Douthwaite-Teasdale, said “We’re excited to bring together people from each community to explore the huge impact that these areas have had on Scotland’s History; from being the home to the world’s largest producers of Blotting Paper, the site of a roman hoard and the location of one of Scotland’s worst mining disasters.”

 

She adds “And that’s only half of the pictures as we also want to explore the natural importance of these areas which include important swathes of Bog and Heath encompassing the Slamannan Plateau, the winter home to Taiga bean goose, which are currently under threat.”
