Douglas/Carnwath Combination, Lanarkshire

[Records] [Bibliography] [Links]

A cottage at 122 Main Street, Carnwath, is reputed to have once been a poorhouse.

The Douglas Combination was formed in 1853 and comprised the parishes of: Biggar, Mid Calder, West Calder, Carnwath, Culter, Douglas, Kirknewton, Wandell & Lamington, and Wiston & Roberton. Following the withdrawal of Douglas, it was renamed the Carnwath Combination in 1859 but appears to have disbanded by 1865. Despite receiving approval for a poorhouse site and plans, none seems to have been set up.

Biggar subsequently juined the Peebles Combination.
