Halfway to Burgh; The Two Towns Local History Show

Rutherglen and Cambuslang have a rich and colourful history dating back many centuries. These two towns have witnessed some really important events in Scottish history.

Carrick McDonald has been putting together some programmes about local history for CamGlen Radio. In these programmes he will be looking back at the two towns, in times gone by, exploring the castles, factories, coalmines and churches of the past, and at the lives of the men and women who are part of our rich local history.

Join Carrick on Friday’s from 1pm as we explore the fascinating history of Rutherglen and Cambuslang, in:  Halfway to Burgh; The Two Towns Local History Show on CamGlen Radio.

If you have any suggestions for a programme or would like to contribute please email history@camglenradio.org

The first programme looks at the history of the Hoover factory in Cambuslang, from its early days in the second World War until its closure in 2005.
