Montgomery Square
Montgomery Square
Montgomery Square bounds two sides of Eaglesham Parish kirkyard and was once the High Street. Gas works were situated in Gas Works Lane which 19th century maps show to be Kirk Wynd which leads off Montgomery Square beside the cottage pictured in the background. Kirk Wynd is known locally as Gassy Brae in reference to the gas works that were once situated here. The Darvel and Newmilns weavers used to make the 16 mile journey from Darvel to Eaglesham on occasion carrying a piece of finished cloth for the markets and collecting a new clue of yarn which would arrive with the carriers from Glasgow and Paisley.
