Statement of Interest

Some possible connection with William Burn as he was known to then Lord Belhaven, who called upon Burn to survey Cambusnethan Parish Church in 1837. Though now on a busy main road and flanked by council housing the lodge is a remnant of the Wishaw Estate probably, according to elderly locals it was the western gatehouse. Wishaw House, James Gillespie Graham, circa 1850, was demolished in 1951 and the estate broken up. Various former estate buildings survive in the area including the Forresters Cottage, the East Lodge and the Coach House (see separate listing). The Wishaw estate extended from Wishaw the River Calder to the Clyde and the western half of Wishaw town.
