Cleghorn


South Lanarkshire

A small village on the southern bank of the Mouse Water in South Lanarkshire, Cleghorn is located 2 miles (3 km) northeast of Lanark. It takes its name from Cleghorn House and estate but was not developed until the later 20th C. Horticulture is a prominent local industry, with significant areas of glasshouse producing tomatoes, strawberries, vegetables and trees since the 1930s. The West Coast Main Line passes to the north of the village, but its station closed in 1965, a victim of the Beeching cuts which fell heavily on rural railway stations. The Station House remains, but little remains of the station itself. The Lanark Branch diverges from the main-line at Cleghorn Junction, to the northeast of the village.
