Welcome to Monklands Memories

Memory is a remarkable gift and memories are very precious. 
We all carry them on life's journey. Everything we have ever experienced is etched somewhere in our minds. 

When age creeps up on us it becomes a time for reflection, events have happened in all our lives that are fixed in our minds. From our innermost thoughts we recall the early days of childhood, days during school years, days of courtship, working days, good and bad days, fun filled days, days of happiness and enjoyment and days of sadness.

Days that seem to drag on forever full of trivialities and frayed tempers, so much time that has gone in a flash. How often we say to each other do you remember when we did such and such a thing, or went to a certain place.

It is with these thoughts that we hope stir your memories and help you to record them - to help other people recall their best and worst days.

This site is a resource for some of the rarest photo's, facts and media from the Monklands and its rich history. It is a constant work in progress where new items will be emerging constantly, so it will be worth checking back occasionally if you are interested in the history of the Monklands.

As well as amassing a personal collection of media, we most definitely welcome your memories, videos and pictures from the past, and will happily credit you fully and clearly for anything you wish to share.

You don't need to register to read the articles or see the media - just let us know if you enjoy the experience.

Please feel free to send us your own memories.
