Pottery Cottage Cleland
« on: Thursday 09 November 17 20:12 GMT (UK) »
Hi there, I know there was a Pottery Factory in Cleland that was destroyed by fire in 1914 however does anyone know if Pottery Cottage still exists? It must have existed in 1930 because my friends mothers birth certificate says she was born there. Id love to find it or at least where it was...thanks for any help

Thanks so much! So is it in Bothwell rather than Cleland?

It looks as if the boundary between the parishes of Shotts and Bothwell follows the Tillan Burn, and Cleland Mansion House and Cleland Pottery are both west of the burn so they are in the parish of Bothwell. The village of Cleland is east of the burn. in the parish of Shotts.

On modern maps Cleland Pottery is named as Delfburn Piggery. See http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2663153 - you need to click on the map and enlarge it to see the name.
