Old Photograph School Annathill Scotland

Old photograph of the School in Annathill, a small village located near Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire, Scotland. Coatbridge is situated about 10 miles east of Glasgow city centre. Annathill was primarily famous for coal, as it was home to Bedlay Colliery. The majority of miners from Bedlay Colliery came from Annathill and there were houses along with various shops, a butchers and a school and pub which were all built around the same time Bedlay Colliery was sunk in 1905. On December 11 1981, Bedlay Colliery was closed by the then Conservative government.
