The Glasgow region
Rutherglen received the status of Royal Burgh in 1126 by Royal Charter from King David I of Scotland who ruled from 1124 to 1153. In the 14th century Walter Stewart, father of King Robert II, was granted Farme Castle. This was located close to Farme Cross in the east of Rutherglen, and stood until the 1960s.
Rutherglen was a centre of heavy industry, having a long coal mining tradition which died out by 1950. J&J White’s Chemical Works (later ACC Chrome&Chemicals) in Shawfield, which was in existence from 1820 to 1967, produced more than 70% of the UK’s Chromate products including chromic acid, chromic oxide pigment, sodium and potassium chromate and dichromate. Today there is a significant legacy of soluble [chromium (VI)] waste in the area. Rutherglen, and most of the towns encircling the city, are dormitory suburbs of Glasgow.
We have a main street with lots to do and it's a short distance to City Centre by train bus or car. There are plenty of shops restaurants library carry out food shops pubs town hall. The railway station is 7 Minutes from the house and you can go down the stairs which is a shortcut to the Main Street,Buses and Railway Station.
There is a lovely park called Overtoun Park and although it only takes about 10 minutes to walk around most people just walk round a couple of times.
There are all night large supermarkets Superstores quite near by car taking 3/4 minutes to get there, or a 15 minute walk away. A large supermarket ALDI is at the bottom of our road. The Main Street has a small mall/ shopping centre and has large pubs which serve good wholesome food and there are smaller pubs, small restaurants and cafe's, one of which stays open late at night and you can still eat inside. The town hall has a lovely café during the day and there are several cafe's along the main street some with outdoor seating. The Town Hall hosts events regularly.
