Celebrate Lanarkshire’s rich heritage

A new exhibition celebrating Lanarkshire’s rich heritage has opened at Hamilton’s Low Parks Museum.

Fermtouns to New Toons looks at the landscape, industry and buildings that have shaped our towns and villages, our communities and the people who have made a difference locally and internationally.

From fruit orchards in the Clyde Valley to lace-making, coal mining and shipbuilding which led to the development of many of the towns and villages in South Lanarkshire, all appear.

Part of the Celebrating Lanarkshire 2013 project the exhibition is by South Lanarkshire Leisure and Culture’s Museum service and South Lanarkshire Museums Forum and it highlights aspects of our shared past, through the people, places, traditions and objects that help to tell our story.

Fermtouns to New Toons is on until 26 January 2014.
