Summerlee miners' cottages

Two rows of little cottages, decorated to reflect different periods of when miming was active in Lanarkshire, sit within Summerlee heritage museum.

It was interesting to see the increase in consumer luxuries throughout the different decades.

Nearby is a reproduced adit mine which uses a sloping track for access rather than the usual shaft.
