LOW PARKS IN HAMILTON C1965

Today we are posting the second picture that was sent in by David Rams. In the picture is an aerial photograph, looking over the old town and also features the construction of the M74 motorway c1965.

The land at the far left of this picture was part of Hamilton Palace’s Farm Estates, where they grew vegetables for the Duke. Local man Wullie Gardner (also known as Watery Wull) had a farm on this ssection of land. The houses at Mote Hill now occupies the land where his farm was.

At the top of the picture you can see the large football parks where the annual fair used to put on a show twice a year and is now called the Palace Grounds where the retail park and fitness club are today.

If you would like to share some old photos of the town then send them to us on a PM or by email at HistoricHamilton@icloud.com
